Car Crashed Into my Bonsai

ok this I first saw on a website about bonsai so I decided I would do it to, all I did was took a hammer to the front end of a little Hot Wheel car then I popped off a front wheel and then laid it next to my tree, then laid the wheel next to the front end.....

I also made a wall/road thing :lol: to make it look like the car ran off a road or somthing. Theres also a rock in the middle of nowhere just for looks anyways heres a pic:

lol That is great. :D

It may not be mainstream, but I quite enjoy the less formal bonsai - animal forms, growing over or around odd items. So that is quite cool.

haha that's great! :) I'm thinking of doing root over rock one day but instead of a rock, using a toy car. when I'm more experienced though and I find material that's suitable for this.

What an adorable idea =) And pretty inexpensive too! Once I started looking into it, there are a surprising number of bonsai accesories XD It really just gives them that extra personal touch I guess!

That's great!

Nick Lenz does some cool things too. He has a forest group with a derelict old tank in it.

And of course there is his demon maple.

I want to make a root over rock with this demon skull. I was supposed to go to a workshop to set this up, but the weather was too nice and I wound up potting up some other trees at home.

That demon maple is fantastic. I feel that bonsai gardeners should "branch out" past the formal styles and be artistic in this way. Especially in the West (USA, Europe, etc.) where we need to make our own traditions and not feel bound to purely Asian ideas artistically.
