Under The Sausage Tree - South Luangwa, Zambia
This luxuriously layered print features a typical scene in the Laungwa Valley, in Zambia. Life taking place beneath one of the incredible Sausage Trees. This life giving tree provides food, shade and medicinal benefits to humans and animals alike. During the dry season, hippos will feed on the giant seed pods (which look like great hanging sausages) and smaller mammals feed on the beautiful, exotic flowers which fall to the floor.
The wide canopy of the these trees is a great place for leopard to sleep out the heat of the day, dozing silently high in the boughs.
This vibrant piece flows from the shade under the tree, where a leopard has been awoken from its slumbers, and out into the dusty grassland of an African day as the impala and Lillians Love Birds burst into the light. A white throated bee eater perches on a branch in the middle of the scene.
This piece is full of the life an vibrancy which Shelly so enjoys on her visits to this incredible part of our planet.
