Bonsai

nutraloaf: The lack of living tissue on the trunks of it and those in the background makes me suspect he made them by embedding younger bonsai in pieces of bleached driftwood.
carre_rouge: i agree that is most likely bleached and its actually a debated technique in bonsai culture, but that doesn’t mean the tree is not 150 years old. personally I never liked much the bleaching but the old wood tends to turn grey and its not appreciated by everyone.
graycam: It’s a juniper, which naturally has deadwood on it. You apply lime sulfur on it once or twice a yr to bleach (to enhance) and to kill fungi / funk to stop it from rotting. There’s also live veins in the tree - you just can’t see from this angle.
