Tidbinbilla I – Ltd Ed Fine Art Print by Esther Beaton

$325.00

Small tree shedding bark layers. Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve, Australian Capital Territory

SKU: SXDC-11444-30 Category: Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

My series on “Natives” is meant to feature the peculiarities of Australia’s botanical forms. And once again I find myself back on the theme of “bark”. 

Australian eucalypt trees don’t shed their leaves all at once in autumn. Other, they shed their bark. As the trunk grows and swells outward, especially during the nourishing summer months, the taught skin lets go and splits apart. This young tree is intriguing the way its bark has split sideways, vertically and every which way. And a little owl-like character watches the process.
