Myron
Thanks for the informative article on "mudmen". Not my favorite term for them. but most people know what the reference is to.

My wife and I have a collection, some fairly old. The appear very similar to your group thats ca. 1900. She inherited most of them from her grandmother who was an Asian artifact collector.

Theres a store in my town that sells a great variety of Chinese artifacts. Among them are sets of 5 or more made for collectors, and quite expensive. They won't sell individual pieces from the sets, unless one of the set is broken. My wife found one for me from a broken set that cost about $40. The link is to a picture of it. It's supposed to be an image of Tamo, a teacher from around 500 AD. ( I deleted the link because it isn't available to all. I downloaded the image to this forum. Check my next post. mp)

I like to use the figurines in display, and don't care if some of the traditionalists are offended. Their problem, not mine.
Again, thanks for the article.
Mike

Mike,
I have noticed your use of mudmen in your displays and often wondered about them. You mentioned that "mudmen" is not your favorite term for these figurines, what term do you prefer?

Also Mike, the link you posted will only show the picture to BT members, those who are not members can not view it. Maybe using the attachment feature here would allow it to be seen by all readers.

Myron,
I found this article very informative and interesting, thank you for allowing it to be posted here.

I'll try to post the image I was referring to.
Regarding "mudmen", it sometimes seems to me the term is used in a derogatory manner. Maybe I'm wrong about that.
Mike

Myron, thank you so much for the lovely article. I was the contest coordinator over at Bonsai Talk where the article was originally published. It was wonderful to have the quality articles submitted that we did.
Your enjoyment and use of the Mudmen adds a great deal to the art of bonsai, and many others share your interest.
Joanie

Hi Joanie,
I would like to thank you and Matt for providing an opportunity to write the article, not only for myself but for all contestants who were able to share their viewpoints and discuss their ideals in that manner, your work and Matt's editorial efforts at bonsaiTalk is greatly appreciated, thank you both for allowing such an opportunity to all involved.
And of course, equal gratitude to the good folks here at AoB for republishing the mud man article to the world on this excellent web site, thanks for a job well done to Paul Stokes.
Sincerely,
Myron Redding.
