I am interested in bonsai, but I'm having difficulty finding the design that I want because when searching the internet most of the bonsai styles don't have pictures.

Could we create a compilation of bonsai styles here? It will be much better if we can add pictures.

Unique Bonsai Styles

At first glance, many bonsai styles can be identified by the basic descriptions.

They may also be combinations of shapes, such as a 'windswept semi-cascade.'

Or they may be something totally unique, such as this pine by bonsai artist Walter Pall (Germany.)
