Leaf Baobab Tree and Buffalo Combo
The area of Modjadjiskloof, Limpopo, South Africa is home to the largest Baobab in the world.
All Baobabs are deciduous trees ranging in height from 5 to 20 meters.
The Baobab tree is a strange looking tree that grows in low-lying areas in Africa and Australia. It can grow to enormous sizes and carbon dating indicates that they may live to be 3,000 years old.
One ancient hollow Baobab tree in Zimbabwe is so large that up to 40 people can shelter inside its trunk.
Various Baobabs have been used as a shop, a prison, a house, a storage barn and a bus shelter.
This piece depicts the Baobab tree surrounded by Buffalo (ironwood).
