Display stands

When viewing a formal “Tokonoma” style bonsai display, you will usually see three key elements:

  • the bonsai tree
  • an accent item e.g. a plant
  • a display stand for the bonsai (called a "dai")

These three items should harmonize to create a balanced visual composition. 
Dai come in many sizes and styles, and selecting the right one for the tree and the display requires careful consideration.
