For Major Bewli bonsai is not a dwarf species or a young sapling shaped as a tree but an artifact coming out of love and hard work that is put over the years to create a piece of living art, resembling a mature, balanced and an aged tree in nature.

For Major Bewli bonsai is not a dwarf species or a young sapling shaped as a tree but an artifact coming out of love and hard work that is put over the years to create a piece of living art, resembling a mature, balanced and an aged tree in nature.
