Ivory Bonsai by Yang Hsiu

Ivory Bonsai by Yang Hsiu

He writes about this tree:
Theme : Aftermath (from an earthquake)
Main trunk of this Ivory Bonsai (sci : Diospyros Ferrea) has up and down movement and its wounds are lumpy, bulging, sunken in, etc. which represent the scene of aftermath. The first branch (is also the back branch) moves downward before moving upward that imply human overcoming difficulties and present hope for rebuilding disaster situation. Unwanted branches as in bonsai imply new hope for new life. The crown of bonsai, the branch moves vertically upward to horizontally downward which implies richness and luxury will soon end. The right branch moves outwardly but crossing path with another branch which implies life is chokingly painful and sad.
