    Buddha Knee

    Pin It

    Hotoke - 仏 - Buddha's Knee

    This is the transforation of 'Hotoke';  an old Japanese Black Pine (mikawa).  It was named by it's previous owner (Ian Hearn) as 'Buddhas Knee'.

    Originally styled as a 'Literati', I reversed the front, bent the apex forward and styled it as a Moyogi - 'migi katte'.

    Please excuse the very long needles; two wet growing seasons have set back my needle reduction plans.!!

    Lots of refinement ahead of it.!!!!

    It is potten in a very nice Chinese ZhengLiang pot.
