Greeting card: R50.00 (including postage)

In his woodcut of this Celtis africana "white stinkwood" tree, South African artist, Joshua Miles, captures the essence of these beautiful trees that appear to glow with a soft radiance in the forest.

Printed on recycled card, the back of the card carries the following message:

Thank you for participating in the Platbos Forest Reforestation Project. In addition to the many positive benefits that your tree gives to the wider environment, it is also 'growing' this unique and precious forest ecosystem for the continued benefit of future generations.

By planting trees and adopting sustainable living practices, you make the difference!

When you order a card please be sure to include a personal message for the person in whose honour the tree(s) have been planted.


Joshua Miles lives and works in Baardskeerdersbos, a small village in the Overberg. He works mainly with oil painting and reductionblock woodcuts of which this greeting card is an example. His inspiration comes from his everyday life and the landscape in which he lives. Water and light frequently appear in his work.
