To my eyes, this literati style pine one of the most distinctive trees that Bill Valavanis posted from the recent 4th Zhongguo Feng Penjing Exhibition

We’ve got more photos by Bill Valavanis today. This time we’ve selected Literati style bonsai (Bunjin in Japanese) from the recent 4th Zhongguo Feng Penjing Exhibition. You can see some more bonsai from this exhibition in a post we did last week. Or better still, you can visit Bill’s Welcome to My Bonsai World blog .

By the way, Bill has made no claim that any of the trees I chose to show here are or aren’t literati style. That’s completely on me

Even though this is one of my favorites, I might be reluctant to call it literati. It has the tall thin trunk with most of the branching toward the top that we associate with literati, but the abundance of rich foliage speaks of a life that's may be just a little to soft for literati.

Here’s a discussion on Literati (Bunjin) that you might find useful. Be sure to check the comments

Bill wrote that this was his personal favorite bonsai in the exhibition. I take it to be a dwarf Pomegranate.
