2007 and still going....

Yes, here she is.... A baobab tree of 2007 years old.. and still growing... The hole you saw yesterday was an opening in her trunk, as you all thought. It was used as a "fridge" for a bar during the Leydsorp Goldrush many many years ago. Tomorrow I'll post a picture that will give you more of an idea how big that opening is. Thanx for all the visits and comments.

Said yesterday that it was one of the possibilities. After I gave my comment I've noticed on your detailed image some carvings and that excluded the other by me mentioned possibility. I'm however surprised by its size Marietha. Really impressive.

We donít make art to show someone what something looks like. All this requires is eyes (or a lens). Art is supposed to have meaning, emotion, power, or magic. Alan & Mario "FourThirds"
