Mr. Wu Yee-Sun, has now reached an advanced age, and has been in need of medical care in the hospital constantly and can no longer cultivate the penjing, or enjoy the relaxed and enriching life of garden planting. It is regretful that without his personal care and trimming, his artworks are losing gradually their characteristics and distinct features.

Nevertheless, every artwork of Mr. Wu demonstrates the joy he has shared with other penjing experts and enthusiasts. To commemorate this valuable experience with his supporters, we have collected the photo images of Mr. Wu's penjing creation to compile a full-colored, hard- covered photo collection. The collection is a witness of Mr. Wu's efforts in establishing his signature style of penjing over the last seven decades.

We have printed only 3000 copies of the photo collection and it will be on charity sale worldwide in Jan.2002. All proceeds will be donated to " Sowers Action ''except mail expenses.
