Bansoy
Ang bansot na halamang makahoy
The art of miniaturizing trees, Philippine context.

As the art of Bonsai reached other places it was redefined according to the priniciple or philosophy of a country. In the Philippines, bonsai’s counterpart is bansoy.

Bansoy follows a principle that shaped itself into something far different from bonsai. It also espouses a design philosophy that can only be identified as Filipino.

Bansoy produces rainbow branching which is normal in deep-rooted trees of tropical countries. In rainbow branching, bansoy branches grow in a circular shape allowing its viewers to see its full-view.
