Old Giant tree that fell
Old fallen Maroela tree that still survive - Medium: oil on stretched canvas Size: 700 x 540 sold.(2007)
(commission similar 2012 - R3900)
This great big giant must have fallen over after a good rain storm. Sometimes the ants undermine these big trees and dig the soil around the tree so that when the great rains come the soil is too soft and the whole tree falls over. This tree had branchess that was still growing and producing green leaves
Like human society nature has its own monuments - this tree had different seasons and now instead of standing up straight it was to make an impact, it was lieing down and still saying something. It is a great place for children to climb trees and have a picnic under. .
