Thanks!  Bonsai is, of itself, very dualistic.  The ideal bonsai would 
arguably look like a miniature of a full size tree, so I attempted to 
achieve that as well, while still keeping certain other cues, like the 
larger-than-normal leaves.

Bonsai purists may hate me for this picture, however, as the introduction of 
miniatures into a bonsai is most often frowned upon.  Of course, "live" 
miniature people might be ok, if the Japanese had some handy.  ;-)
