Description and photo on back of print:

"Boab Tree (Adansonia gregorii)
The Boab Tree is related to the Madagascan and African Adansonia species known as baobabs. As with other baobabs, it is easily recognised by the swollen base of its trunk, which forms a massive caudex, giving the tree a bottle-like appearance. The huge tree, found in the Western Australian Kimberley region, is used as food, medicine, shelter and artwork. Boabs range form 5-15 metres in height, usually between 9-12 metres, with a broad bottle-shaped trunk. Its trunk base may be extremely large; trunks with a diameter of over 5 metres have been recorded. Adansonia gregorii is deciduous, losing its leaves during the dry winter period and producing new leaves and large white flowers between December and May."

About the Artist:
