squandering red

There is hope, but not for us.

The bloodwood tree(Pterocarpus angolensis) is a deciduous tree with a high canopy, reaching about 15m in height and has dark bark.  The red sap is used traditionally as a dye and in some areas mixed with animal fat to make a cosmetic for faces and bodies. It is also believed to have magical properties for the curing of problems concerning blood, apparently because of its close resemblance to blood. The name bloodwood for these trees stems from the dark red to brown sap that accumulates on wounds on the trunks.
