The tree symbol of Senegal, to which its inhabitants lend miraculous virtues and magical powers. … The spirits of the ancestors are supposed to live in the trunk of these gigantic trees. Baobab takes the African molded forms of the celebrated tree. The bewitchment of its forms makes it possible to hide the very spirit of a design made of small bark on a trunk whose roots perpetuate African magic. Such is the Baobab design.
