This type of bamboo is popular in Chinese community using for worship the God of Guan Yin, even we named it as Guan Yin's bamboo. Typically believers put only a bamboo into the vase that always laying beside the Guan Yin statue.
Last few years this type of bonsai are popular and good selling before the advent of Chinese New Year, it is a beautiful decorations that can be placed indoors. This bonsai is look like a pineapple too, which is a lucky item for the Chinese New Year.
This photo was shoot in a shopping complex, going to celebrate Chinese New Year at the middle February, this year the first day of CNY is fall on 14th February, thought roses and bamboos are well selling at this season.

An incredibly fascinating photograph! I really thought it was a pineapple ;) Great focus, composition and bright colours. The lighting is also perfect - almost looks like a studio shot!

With your shot you have presented a very interesting cultural tradition and beautiful type of fine arts. This particular bonsai looks extremely beautiful due to excellent technique and well chosen contrasting background. The technique of capturing also is very good. The photo is perfectly well composed, captured and commented in the note!

This is a fine still life, with a strong set of contrasting colours!
I watched a TV documentary about bonsai not long ago, very interesting to see how the shape of those small trees were created...
Pleasant symmetry, sharp fine details!

I like real Bonsai, but I have seen many Bonsais in South East Asia which are not real Bonsais. What so ever I like your Bonsai and I like the bamboo with a red BG. The only thing I would had done differently would have been the positioning of the plant, a bit more the right or left out of the center. Well done - Thanks for your Thaipusam critique.

I like this one, very excellent use of two simple primary colours. They offer a simple and eye-catching contrast. The red really drew me into the image. Well done and good idea.

The note is interesting, .. and its three elements.
Commercial and botanical, social, and Memorial (shortly).
Color and composition ... but also culture.
In our New Year is past, and February 14 (Valentine) is the day of lovers.
They send messages, gifts, cakes and flowers

Bamboo is also popular in Brazil. Due to its flexibility, craftsmen love to work with it for their artworks. You found a nice background for this beautiful handmade vase. It makes the subject to pop up in the frame. Very good quality and composition. Well done and thanks for sharing!
