Canoe tree

This old river red gum had a canoe taken from it by the local aboriginal tribe many many years ago.
There are two near here on the River Finnis, well there are probably more but two are near the road. I dont think the trees usually died when a canoe was cut as they only took out the bark and there are many live canoe trees still around.
I have had very little time to paint but we saw this when we went up to Mannum yesterday, when John took me for an airing!!
