Fibonacci Fungus attacks Binary Bonsai!

A wonderful surprise arrived at the studio this weekend. Azly from Amsterdam sent this beautiful old tree. It’s based on the binary bonsai pattern but has suffered the ravages of time. The broken branch show some growth rings. There are several species of fungus growing on it: yellow hyperbolic, blue chanterelles, purple Fibonacci and grey/green rule 30 fragments I think. A wonderful encapsulation of all the project patterns so far.
