A love story:-
Sometimes people do truly awesome things in the name of love. It was love that drove Argentinian farmer Pedro Ureta to transform part of his land in Argentina’s Pampas into a multi-coloured guitar-shaped forest that stretches 2/3 of a mile:
Crushed by the loss of his love, a few years later Ureta began working on designing a guitar in his field that could be seen from above by airplane. He settled on the design because his late wife loved the instrument and he wanted to memorialize her on his land.
Working tirelessly to plant and cultivate the trees, Ureta created a perfect guitar shape, complete with a star-shaped hole in the middle. Using mostly cypress trees to form the outline, Ureta used blue eucalyptus trees to accent the strings on the neck of the guitar. Easily visible from airplanes, the guitar brings joy to many who fly over the Pampas
