Bonsai Tree by Artist Mauro Stemberger Prostrata Juniper with 2 ½ Trunk. Height: The height of the tree from the soil line to the top of the apex is 17. Trunk Diameter: The trunk Dia with deadwood, is approximately 2.5. Nebari (Root Spread): Tree shows many exposed Roots 6. As the title states, this tree was created by my friend and Bonsai artist Mauro Stemberger who graciously allowed me to use his name in the sale of this tree. This tree is the last of Mauros trees that I will make available. He sense of serenity and the feeling of harmony that Mauro can bring out in these little trees, it is very difficult to not love the art of bonsai. Mauro was born in Italy where he discovered the beautiful art of Bonsai at the young age of 14 years old and with his incredible vision has become one of the top bonsai artists outside of Japan. He has appeared at The Noelanders, Ginko Award, and Bonsai Focus magazine numerous times. This midsize and rustic giant has all the right ingredients necessary in becoming a masterpiece soon. Considering the fact that the tree stands only seventeen inches tall, the character that the trunk as well as the tree shows is very dramatic. In a few weeks the canopy should fill in quite nicely as the trees overgrowth was recently cleaned by this writer. In my opinion if the proper maintenance is done in maintaining the trees silhouette, this bonsai will be show ready this coming Spring. To help preserve the deadwood and increase the contrast between the live and dead portions of the trunk a bit more lime sulfur was added, which explains the yellowish color of the Jin as well as the Shari. The deadwood has since taken on a bone white color. The pot that Mauro chose to use for this beautiful tree is equally pleasing. It is an old Yixing ceramic bonsai pot (14″x10″x3.5) with a strong texture to compliment the rustic appearance of the bark. On a side note. Ive noticed that not too many sellers talk or write about things that should be done after you receive your tree so I will give you my two cents worth. When you receive your tree unpack it carefully. Cut the tape and plastic wrap from the pot and the branches if applicable. Secondly give the tree a good watering and then put the tree in a partially shaded spot for a few days to allow it to adjust. After several days of adjustment your new bonsai can be reintroduced to bright sun. Good luck and if you have any questions feel free to fire off a message.
