This Scots Pine Bonsai was created in May 2012 from a neglected piece of untrained material, as shown below, that had been forgotten about for about 8 years. It was “rediscovered” and in the space of 2 or 3 hours had been transformed into a promising piece of Bonsai art in a style known as Literati.
