The art -
Bonsai is a Japanese version of the original traditional Chinese art penijing or penzai. Unlike penjing, which utilizes traditional techniques to produce entire natural sceneries in small pots that mimic the grandiose and shape of real life sceneries, the Japanese "bonsai" only attempts to produce small trees that mimic the shape of real life trees. The twelve specimens of Japanese 'bonsai' in this calendar are quite extraordinary.
