The Quiver Tree
-

The Bushmen of the Namib desert in South Africa used to make quaint containers or quivers for their arrows from the branches of the Quiver tree.
The tree has thick succulent leaves which grow in rosettes at the end of stumpy branches. The branches are filled with a soft fibre that holds a large quantity of water.
After cutting a branch to drink its water, the Bushman could convert it into an arrow holder by hollowing it out and closing the bottom end with a piece of leather.
