Guitar Shaped Forest

An eternal love bond of Graciela and Pedro

Guitar Shaped Forest

There is no limit to love. Those who are in love, are ready to do everything for their love. Whether their love is with them or not.

Taj Mahal … a very big example of this. Mughal emperor Shah Jahan built the Taj Mahal for the tombs of his wife Mumtaz Mahal. Mumtaz passed away at the time of giving birth to her 14th child. Shah Jahan’s eternal love for making the Taj Mahal was for his wife.

Similarly, Pedro Martin Ureta of Argentina has also paid tribute to his wife Graciela Yraizoz.

The guitar was Graciela’s favorite instrument and so she wanted to make a huge guitar-shaped forest through trees on their farmland. This idea came to her in the 1970s but she could not complete it. In 1977, when she was about to become a mother and was in the process of giving birth to her 5th child, she died due to a cerebral aneurysm. At that time she was only 25 years old.

Ureta was in the sorrow of losing his love and completely forgot about it. But in 1979 when he remembered about this again, he started to fulfill this last wish of his paramour wife.

Pedro began to grow trees on his farmland, along with his children. He used to grow the trees in such a way that they would take the shape of a huge guitar.

This multi-colored guitar is made mostly of Cypress’s trees. Those trees are sometimes eaten by wild animals, so Pedro Martin Ureta and their children grow new trees at all times and take full care of the shape of this huge guitar.

This is their way of giving tribute to the woman whom they love so much and who holds such importance in their lives.

It is noticeable beautifully by airplane. The hole between this giant guitar is made in the shape of a star.

This guitar-shaped forest brings a smile to the face of all those people who see it flying in air, as well as reminds them of their true love.

Pedro Ureta is afraid of flying, and so he has seen it through photographs. He immersed the huge guitar-shaped forest so that his dead wife could see it from heaven.
