Heirs of the kingdom is about inheriting the canopy and thus the light. The beech Myrtle eventually rotts in the rainforest conditions and falls over but to avoid this being the death of the tree it shoots up saplings from the root stock which if favourable placed will inherit the light when the main trunck falls. Here the shoot on the righ t will inherit the kingdom. Also in the root areas you can count many generations of main trunks - thus these trees are very old and genetically the same stock. This is an Oil painting - painted on site in 1999. It is 800mm x 1200mm large.
