The two stumps at the top of the trunk.

We decided that although Larch callous strongly and would heal over what would be a large 5cm+ diameter wound within a few years, it would be preferable to create a jin that would compliment the character of the bonsai itself.

The two stumps after carving.

The two stumps were stripped of bark and thick Larch cambium before being carved. Using a Dremel carving machine with various carving bits and wire brushes, we were able to create one right-facing jin.

The styling of the Larch was complete. However, with this tree, we found that Alex is lucky enough to have a large number of alternative front views!
