Beast of the Southern Wild. We don't know the dimensions of this monster, but we know its name. It's a Pithecellobium  unguis (Catclaw black bead), a genus and species completely new to us (and probably new to you too). As you can see, this particular bonsai is about as unique as they get with nature doing most of the work and Nacho Marin providing the finishing touches.

Getting ready to  head out of town for a little mixed R&R and work (there’s always some work), so we’ll take a shortcut today. This post originally appeared in February, 2015, though from where we sit now, it was entirely too wordy. A condition we’ve attempted to remedy with some serious surgery

Today, it’s the bonsai of Nacho Marin, an artist who has burst into bonsai consciousness with intensity, daring and large doses of creativity. At the risk of overstatement, Nacho is an artist who stands out in a world where new and exciting bonsai appear daily.

Though comparisons are often odious, I like this Bougainvillea more than the one above. I'll leave the rest to you.
