Goshin by John Yoshio Naka, North America's most famous bonsai. Photos will never do it justice. It is huge, about 1 meter tall (just over 3 feet) and is so dramatic in person that it seems to vibrate with power. This photo, by Peter Bloomer is originally from Timeless Trees by Peter and Mary Bloomer. It also appears on the cover of Bonsai Today issue 93, an issue that features a tribute to the life and works of John Naka.
