Caption: Quiver tree and ostriches. 19th-century illustration of a quiver tree (Aloe dichotoma) and ostriches (Struthio camelus) in south-western Africa. This illustration is by British artist Thomas Baines (1820-1875). Baines documented the scenery, flora and fauna of southern Africa from 1857 to 1864. In 1858 and 1859 he travelled with British explorer David Livingstone on his expedition along the Zambezi River. Baines then travelled with explorer James Chapman in south-western Africa from 1861 to 1863. This artwork is titled 'The Great Tree-Aloe of Damaraland', and dates from 1862. Damaraland is the north-central part of what is now Namibia.
