Mangosteen - oil/panel - 7"x5"

'Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit'. - Kahlil Gibran

One of the most beautiful and delicious fruits in the world.

Mangosteen trees give fruit in abundance during the rainy season on the island I stay on while in Thailand. During that time you can head into the forest and collect this exotic fruit by the bag load.

The outer shell which protects the delicate white fruit segments has the most wonderful dark reddish purple colour. A wonderful subject to capture forever and then devour!
