Piece description from the artist
I took this image while hiking up Kirstenbosch Gardens in Cape town with a close friend of mine. I was fascinated by how some parts of the mountain were covered in trees. I wondered how long it took for those trees to grow on rocky ground. It also looked so surreal, and I imagined a whole different world that must be coexisting within that mountain forest.
