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.http://members.iinet.net.au/~jold/bia/country/philippines/bansoy.shtml
