Suddenly, a guitar.

In the fertile lowland plains of Argentina (the Pampas), a guitar-shaped forest grows amidst the farmland. The project was started in 1979 by [Pedro Martin] Ureta on his farm near the town of Laboulaye, and it has become a wonder for pilots and passengers flying over the region. Together with his children, Ureta created the forest in a tribute to his wife, Graciela, who died during childbirth in 1977…According to news reports, the forest is composed of more than 7,000 cypress and eucalyptus trees. It stretches nearly a kilometer (two-thirds of a mile) across the landscape.”

Thanks NASA!
