"We are always surrounded by plants and flowers. We human beings are also kept alive by nature. To express plants which have organic shapes as plants with angular LEGO blocks - they may seem to contradict each other at first glance, but this idea is a new point-of-view which breaks a possibility of expressions by plants. We wish that as many as people including children feel familiar to plants through LEGO.
To add a fresh dimension, we remodeled a Japanese white pine, which is said to be the king of bonsai among all, with LEGO.
In a Japanese traditional culture bonsai, one modifies branches of the trees that are decades or even hundreds of years old by fixing them with a wire in order to create even more beautiful tree form. In bonsai, the original beauty found in nature is elevated through an intervention of human hands; it is said to be a costar of the nature and human being.
A tree form, position of foliage, and pattern of moss on the ground of LEGO bonsai vary according to one who makes (just as making a real bonsai), and its final appearance will also be largely different. Originally, LEGO consists of “piling up”; by means of changing such perception slightly, the work is to freely combine built parts of the foliage. Some people may create outrageous bonsai. Original LEGO bonsai received an everlasting life and continue to live by the side of the creator. "
