Bonsai



A beautiful bonsai tree which does not require any maintenance!

This bonsai is laser cut from stunning Tasmanian Myrtle Wood and is decorated with exquisite Japanese chiyogami paper on it it's foliage on both sides.
A lacquer is applied to the paper for protection and
 it also emphasises the intricate patterns on the paper.
There are 4 different styles to choose from.
On one side of the tree trunk the words "under the shade of a bonsai tree" are engraved in the Japanese language. It's our business name and so very apt!
The tree has a cross stand at the base and is inserted in a 
lovely neutral brown bonsai pot with pebbles.
Available for purchase
