Bonsai in Slovakia 2010 #4 the demo

I was asked to to a demo. So I got this great piece of material that Maros had collected. It is a wild European hornbeam, Carpinus betulus. I wanted to work with deciduous material as this is the very rare exception for large demos. And I wanted to show the naturalistic bonsai style. The result was a nice triple trunk which is well on it's way. It later miraculously found it's way into my garden. I will report the progress, of course. The last image is a virtual to show what it looks like with a proper pot.
