Hardekoolbome, Bosveld (Leadwood Trees, Bushveld)

Jacobus Hendrik Pierneef, 1944

To Pierneef the tree is not simply a natural object, it was a means of expression, thought, and a feeling.To Pierneef the tree was both a psychological projection of man and a symbol of life, forming a link between heaven and earth....The leadwood tree in particular was a symbol of eternity to him.
