oaktree – The Oak – Sovereign among the Trees

 

The tree is a symbol of constant regeneration, fertility, vitality and eternal life. It is a source of nourishment. And of protection. With the longing for rebirth and immortality rooted deeply in the human soul, for many cultures and religions, the tree has not surprisingly played a major role as an archetypical symbol of life. Especially the oak.

Wrapped Trees – Ende November 1998 verhüllten Christo und Jeanne-Claude im Berower Park der Fondation Beyeler in Riehen bei Basel 178 Bäume.

 

Die der Vergänglichkeit unterworfenen verhüllten Bäume wirkten wie Architektur – sie wurden zur Plastik – verhüllte Baummonumente.
