Araucaria velum

Patricia Van Lubeck

Oil on canvas, 120 x 80 cm (2008)

Araucaria is a large living fossil tree with an affinity for exposed sites. These columnar trees are named after the Arauco Indians of central Chile and south-west Argentina.
Aruacaria velum has developed the amazing ability to use a combination of king tide and offshore winds for their migration.
