Bonsai – A Garden on the Desk Top

Everyone of us wishes sometimes to be a little closer to nature and feel more intensively the tight connection with its mightiness, immensity, and beauty. We can get vitality, inspiration, and pacification from it. Believe it or not, but even living in the high-tech and urbanized cities, we still can have a piece of nature literary on our desk top. The art of tiny indoor gardens is called bonsai. Originating from the country of the rising Sun, bonsai is now well-known and favored by so many people around the globe. Developed almost a thousand years ago by the Japanese people, who possess a refined taste for beauty and who created many different crafts and arts as origami or kanzashi, Bonsai can definitely be called one of the true fine arts, requiring much knowledge, skills, talent, and constant practicing.

Isn’t it charming to have a tiny but fully grown-up pine or maple tree on your table? Taking care of it can require much of your patience and time, but in the long run you will have an excellent example of picturesque, unique, and artful interior decoration and what’s more important – mighty spiritual nourishment for your soul and mind. For the time being, while you are still thinking about the purchase of your own bonsai, we have created this showcase for you to fully understand, evaluate, and simply let your eyes rest on the images of these wonderful incredibly and whimsically curved and bent trees, grown-up with love and care of the modern practitioners of bonsai technique.

With 30 years of life experience behind my shoulders, today I find myself focused mainly around two core values: my family (I am a happy husband and a proud father) and IT in its broadest meaning, including but not limited to hardware and software techniques and innovations. My special interest and true passion is photography. Here I am ready to put my signature under each word, once said by Dorothea Lange: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Being a part of Cruzine team, I enjoy instant process of learning as well as sharing my own experience in photography and IT with the readers of this digital magazine.
