The intricate pruning and maintenance needed to create a miniature bonsai tree takes years of patience and diligence. But artist Ken To has found a shortcut. Instead of plants, he makes his bonsai trees from intricately twisted and curled wire. So they don't require any maintenance whatsoever, and will never wither and die.

At just a few inches tall they're also perfect for the tiniest of apartments, and range in price from $37 for the most miniscule tree, to $175 for a six and a half-inch creation that's still pretty damn small.
