Bonsai Suiseki Competition At Aeon Falim, Ipoh.

A friend informed me that there was a Bonsai Suiseki competition and exhibition at Aeon Falim. The exhibition was held on the 23rd Dec. Two evenings later, we dropped by to see the exhibition. We have never seen so many Bonsai plants, wood and rocks on display and we were glad we went. Thanks to our friend for informing me. Hope you enjoy the photos.

Suiseki also known as viewing stones is the Japanese art of stone appreciation. Formed through time by wind and water, stones can take several sizes and shapes, reminding us of natural objects.
These are wood
If I am not mistaken, this is one of the overall winner.

We have escaped like a bird from the fowler's snare;
the snare has been broken, and we have escaped.
