Katesca‘s vibrant photograph really brings out the gorgeous colours of the fabric wrapped around the Baobab Tree sculpture next to The Hayward gallery on the Southbank.

The work is called Under the Baobab and is part of the Festival of the World celebrations.

The baobab tree is sometimes known as the tree of life because it provides shelter, fruit, bark for making clothes and ropes and store water. The fabric was chosen by the the textile design MA students from Chelsea College of Art and Design and represents their communities of origin.

There’s so many exciting things going on in London this summer, bring your camera and add your photos to the Visit London Flickr pool.
