Artwork Description

“The baobab tree has been called the tree of life. With its layered, translucent bark resembling human skin, it`s as if it truly is a living, breathing creature. In the rainy season, it swells as it takes up water, storing it in its fibrous, somewhat hollow inside to use in times of drought. Reaching up to nearly 100 feet in circumference, these behemoths dwarf anything else on the African landscape. Early one morning, I saw this magnificent baobab as the sun`s rays slowly descended her limbs. She radiated a brilliant orange light, looking just like an awakening queen.”
