Got thisi shohin itoigawa since march.
It has a great body, movement and life vein.

The tree had grown very much and very good since i had it in my collection.
So it was time to give the tree a start.

In the end of July I refined the deadwood a bit,pinched the foliage to let more air and light in the tree, wired and styled this shohin itoigawa.

The backside had a very interesting nebari (deadwood+lifevein together) however you cant see it because of the wet ground.
Allso the twisted lifevein from the front to the back and again to the front was a very interesting point of the tree.

The deadwood was from my opinion allso better,still needs some refinement but this will come in time.
On the right i allso made a little shari to the back near the first right back branch.
Sorry for the colour,the limesulfer was just applied on.

Now it’s only matter of time, maturing and the foliage pads need to grow more wider at some places and more thicker.
Allso when in time the deadwood at the nebari rottens there is always a possibility to lift this tree more to the left to make a beautiful cascade out of it,
but this is something what the future will decide.

No the tree can rest and next year i’ll try to find a suitable pot for it.
