The Baobab

I tried drawing this evening and this is what I made. I call it the Baobab tree.

The Baobab is an iconic African tree. It’s a symbol of the African Savannah that can survive in arid regions. The wood, barks, leaves, fruits and roots serve as food, drugs and raw materials for man and animals. The tree itself provide shelter for anyone who comes to it. It’s also known as the Tree of Life.
