Even if it’s more often associated with Japan nowadays, the art of Bonsai actually orginates in China , more than 2300 years ago. It was used as a spiritual practice, because it was said that recreating a natural scene in miniature had a magical quality, and could bring positive energy. Bonsai is a japanese word meaning “tree in a pot”, derived directly from the chinese word 盆栽 (Pénzāi), with the same meaning.
