Guitar-Shaped Forest is a Man’s Tribute to His Departed Wife
September 11th, 2012
Love can make people do crazy things. It can also inspire, encourage, and push people to go out of their way to come up with something they can dedicate to the person they love.
It was love that pushed Argentinian Pedro Ureta to plant a guitar-shaped forest. His wife Graciela was a huge nature buff and often talked about working on a similar project before she passed away at the age of just 25.
So Pedro took it upon himself to work on the guitar forest that his wife didn’t have a chance to grow. It’s been a couple of years since Pedro embarked on his grand labor of love, and the results of his hard work are finally coming to fruition.
Pedro planted blue eucalyptus trees for the neck of the guitar, while cypress trees outline the body, the bridge, and the sound hole. All told, he planted about 7000 trees. Pretty awesome, don’t you think?
