Bonsai (ornamental plant) is a product created by a very skilful combination of the art _ the gardening. In various aspects, the bonsai symbolizes an art abstract style. Bonsai orginated from China and Japan. Since the 8th century, Japanese people have considered bonsai as an art, that means they already accepted its existence in their culture _ gardening traditons.
