Keshiki means something like “landscape” in japanese and is pronounced kesh-key. The term is used by Kenji Kobayashi in his book to refer to simple “landscape” bonsai that he creates.  

My keshiki come from the same idea.

Keshiki bonsai no. 51 is the Australian native bottlebrush with pincushion moss and loose stones.

As noted on Wikipedia, “Call-istemon citrinus is a shrub in the family Myrtaceae. It is native to south-eastern Australia.”

Last photo shows an example of a more mature Bottlebrush, from here.
