(a) BAOBAB – An Original Drawing on Rice Paper


There are many myths and legends associated with the Baobab Trees of Africa; which is not surprising given their immense size and age  The Bushmen of Southern Africa say that when God made the Baobabs he was angry and instead of planting them, he flung them down to earth; they landed upside down and to this day their roots still stick up into the air. Another Bushmen legend says that the Baobab was the first tree to appear on the earth and from within its gnarled trunk all living creatures, including mankind, emerged.

I took the photograph that provided the reference for this drawing in the northern Kruger National Park. A Baobab of this size could be at least a thousand years old.
