A roomful of attendees comes to hear Polish expat Mario speak on preparing a bonsai for show.
This was one of the better bonsai talks I had attended for a while. The finished tree is immediately on Mario's right (a juniper with pronounced deadwood). The presentation followed the development of the tree over several years, with Mario answering ad hoc questions on the techniques he used for root arrangement and so on.
Mario is now living in Spain after having lived and worked on bonsai in Japan for years, so hopefully we will get to hear from /see more of him in future.
