Artist's Description

CLICK ON PIC TO VIEW LARGE. Quiver Trees (Aloe Dichotoma) at Fish River Canyon in the Namib Desert, Namibia, Africa. Quiver Trees are locally known as “quiver tree” (Afrikaans: kokerboom) because bushmen use its branches to make quivers. They hollow them out and cover the one end with a piece of leather and thus skilfully make from this tree, which they call Choje, a strong and serviceable quiver.

Large trunks of dead trees are also hollowed out and used as a natural fridge. Water, meat and vegetables are stored inside it. The fibrous tissue of the trunk has a cooling effect as air passes through it, a so-called natural fridge.

The young flower buds can be eaten and have a similar appearance and taste to asparagus. Sugar birds are drawn to these flowers in winter where they feed on the nectar produced by the flowers. Aloe dichotoma is an extremely tough tree that may reach an age of over 80 years and a height of approximately 7 metres.
