I have previously shown that the tree on the site of the former Sport Presso Café in Štúrovo still stands sentry on the approach to the Maria Valeria Bridge. This is its seed, encapsulated in clear resin to preserve its memory forever. The resin is also etched with a drawing of the tree and a record of its exact location.

A second seed from a horse chestnut tree close to the Hungarian side of the bridge, has been selected for this process, but awaits a more favourable economic climate for its completion and only exists in graphic form on the wall next to the completed work (illustrated below).
