This is almost a miniature version of similar environment to the one we shall be creating. with its dry foliage and dusty terrain. Also the rocks of the African Serengeti :)
The texture and structure of this tree resembles some from the Serengeti plains and the environment around it with the foliage resemble areas of foliage throughout the african wilderness.
This series of photographs i love this is in a tunnel leading to the african section of London Zoo and this to me says alot about what i love about african art simple but really effective. Simple imagery that tells a story and this gave us the idea to have african style paintings on some of the environment assets.Almost creating an african world out of african art with patterns and carvings within the trees and foliage.
