A little bit of background on this. Boyfriend is on a singer/songwriting course at university and had to write a song on the theme of “Home”. Boyfriend is Australian, so he decided to write about Australia.
We were discussing themes about Australia and how harsh the landscape is, and I remembered that there are trees that burn their own bark as part of their life cycle process. In order to live the longest possible, they have to set themselves alight. Helpfully, I’ve completely forgotten the name of said trees.
So this is a drawing to Australia, where things are so hardcore the trees burn themselves to life.
