Another intricately carved yew. There's something about yews that just beg to be carved, even though with such hard wood it's labor intensive. Unless you have nothing but time, power tools are a must. The artist is Andres Alvarez Iglesias.

Here’s Fred Chenal’s Caption that he posted with this tree… “SURPRISE GUEST….. Andres Alvarez Iglesias will be joining us for a special conference on Sunday, October 15th @11:00 am…. “EVOLUTION OF TAXUS BONSAI” …Hasta pronto, a trés bientôt and see you soon!!” As it turns out, October 15th is during the upcoming 5th European Bonsai-San Show (see below).
