The stand and tree seem to be a terrific fit.  I didn't notice the pot until you mentioned it, but I'm not sure I can imagine a better fit.  Great work!

Hi John,

Your tree was one of my favorites at the Exhibition in Rochester. I liked the angle in which it was presented at the show more than in the photos above. It looked more natural the gave the tree more depth. I wish there were more fine examples of fine JRP bonsai in the States. I'm inspired to grow shohin JRP into contorted shapes or into naturalistic literati, but I have a long way to go. I have a 4y/o black/red pine hybrid seedling in training.

Ofcource, awesome tree! I think this tree has been photographed more than Cindy Crawford.
 I'm probably gonna have my head cut off for suggesting this but, if it were my tree (and I wish it was), I would "crush" down the trunk and make it more compact. It would enhance the movement even more and give it that look of a high mountain tree that was crushed by deep snow every year.
 I have not seen the tree in person plus I usually don't know what I'm talkin about, so I could be wrong. ;)

Haven't posted anything on this tree in the past couple of years. I purchased a 'Duck pot' for this tree when I was in Japan in 12. Showed it in that pot in 13. I came across by the younger Gyouzan, Yuuji, that I think adds an element of elegance to the composition, this tree is a very liw profile moko pot. Here is a picture with the tree set inthe pot during repotting. Chop follows.
