THE LEGEND OF THE AFRICAN BAOBAB TREE is the story of a beautiful tree who complained to the GREAT SPIRIT of the WILD PLAINS about wanting to be the BEST and BRIGHTEST and most HANDSOME of all the African trees. The GREAT SPIRIT became tired of the complaints, and reached down from the sky, yanked the tree out of the ground and placed it back into the earth UPSIDE DOWN! All the animals were alarmed, and so was the huge tree. For after that, the magnificent tree only grew leaves once a year. The other months the ROOTS seemed to bend and grow towards the sky.

The Baobab, is probably the best known tree in Africa. Sometimes called the upside down tree, because of their unusual, root-like branch formations, baobabs are extremely long-lived, with some specimens believed to be as much as 3,000 years old. It is known as the tree of life.

Art work created with banana fiber, using wire and wood to create a replica of the baobab tree. These trees stand 8" tall, and can be used as decoration or as a mini Christmas tree. other versions of the baobab tree are 8”, 12”, 14”, 16, and 24” tall, can be used for jewelry (rings, bracelets, necklaces, etc.)  Makes a lovely gift.
