Lets first chat about what is a bonsai. Do not let anyone fool you. It simply means tree in pot. Yes we try to mimic nature in dwarfing a tree to give the appearance that we are in the pot looking up at a large tree. The Japanese and Chinese both created the art. They may tell you each one started but does it really matter? We have an art that we all can enjoy.
Why are we so drawn to bonsai. Its an never ending art. All other arts for the most part, are completed once you finish the piece or item. Since a bonsai is living the joy never ends. You can prune it, leave it alone, reshape it, add or subtract from the bonsai. Its a never ending living piece of art.
