Puget Sound Bonsai Association Winter Silhouette Show

Subalpine fir paired with an American Indian raven mask. This is part of a virtual winter silhouette show happening now. See the full show at . Also vote for your favorite trees there.

The subalpine fir is a Pacific NW native tree. These trees lived among the native dwellers of this land, the American Indians. NW American Indians believed that the raven is a creature of metamorphosis, and symbolizes change/transformation.

Native holy men understood what the physical eye sees, is not necessarily the truth, and he would call upon the Raven for clarity in these matters.

We certainly have gone through some transformation and change in the last year. We’re also in a time where we question was is true more often than we have before.

This display is using bonsai and companion element to represent a place and culture beyond its Oriental origins. It also symbolizes a deeper meaning than just beautiful trees and accents.
