This particular specimen bonsai has been cultivated to have a "windswept" look. Its trunk looks to have been folded over into a narrow angle by the elements when it was young. The branches have already been heavily wired to open up the foliage pads for more light to penetrate the entire tree.
There's a bit of jin shari work done at the base of the trunk and its mini low branches to give it an aged look of the tree. It gives it an idea that it must have have grown in a harsh climate; where the wind and snow could have ripped off the bark to show its heartwood as it grew in the forest and/or mountains.
