Kachere Tree in Chisamba, Zambia

Here is the painting I finished, commissioned by a client from a recent trip that he took. This is a Kachere tree located at Protea Hotel Safari Lodge, Chisamba. (http://www.proteahotels.com/protea- hotel-safari-lodge.html) The Kachere (Fig "Ficus" tree) - This is a huge tree growing to 60 feet tall and 60 to 70 feet wide. The dense, rounded canopy and gracefully drooping branches of Weeping Fig. There are over 600 species of Ficus, most of them tropical and evergreen, although some, most notably F. carica, the common fig, are deciduous. Ficus produces a unique "fruit" which is actually an inverted flower. Not all Ficus produce edible fruit. http://www.dominicistu dios.com/
