Maybe there are not many aficionados, who do not know these Neagari natural ,part of almost  inspirations of Nature galleries Bonsaistas documents.

For the species that formed these roots extraordinary currently considered patrimony of humanity. Tem o seu nome cientifico ( poucas vezes designado) de Tetrameles Nudiflora e encontram-se no Continente Asiático,mais propriamente no Cambodja.. It has its scientific name (sometimes referred few) from Tetrameles nudiflora and are in mainland Asia, more specifically in Cambodia ..

By giving a look at a private library of a friend, I found a book that automatically recognized the so-called roots, and to verify with him, spoke not of the tree, but the photos and the author of the photos!
The book is written by a Mr. John Mcdermott a fotograph recognized.

 From there I noticed that these ancient roots and inspiring for any Bonsaistic, did they not referenced with the species of tree feeding, and was perhaps for this reason that starting then I was curious to know something more of these trees.

 And among the temples, many just ruins lies the ancient city of Ta Prohm temple in ruins and his amazing where the trees were to be seized with their roots for centuries, in forms majestrais for any admirer of natural phenomena and more for the  Bonsai pasionades.
