Bogenfels Rock, Namibia
watercolor on paper
Quentin Eichbaum, MD, PhD, MPH, MFA, MMHC, FCAP

This original painting represents a major landmark (Bow Rock or “Bogenfels” in
German) on the Namib desert coast of Namibia. As a medical metaphor, it may be
seen as a dark arch, perhaps of illness, one may have to pass under in life to get to
the light on the other side.

Dr Eichbaum grew up in Namibia before coming to the US to study medicine at
Harvard Medical School. He has painted watercolors all his life and considers it
a wonderfully regenerative pasttime that helps him to look at the world and its people
(including patients) with a more curious eye. He is a Professor at the Vanderbilt School
of Medicine in Nashville, TN.
