WHAT IS BONSAI ?
Bonsai is a Chinese word derived from 'Bon', which means tray and 'Sai', which means nature. The art involve reducing the size of a trees by means of pruning, wiring techniques, etc., to give the tree a shape and meaning. Bonsai art originated in China about two thousand years ago, as an object of worship for Taoist monks. For them it was a symbol of eternity; the tree represented a bridge between the divine and the human, heaven and earth. It was then transferred to Japan by Buddhists; making it a philosophy of life.
For centuries the possession and care of bonsai is being linked to the nobles and people of high society. According to tradition, those who could keep a potted tree were guaranteed eternity. This is how the monks arranged the small trees in vessels along the stairs of the temples and even were a source of worship. In recent time, Bonsai has become a decorative art, and as a matter of fact, national festivals are being held every year around the world on Bonsai - where the best developments in this area are exhibited and rewarded, in addition to selling copies.
