The Tree of Ghosts is a landscape element and a meeting place, built as a memorial for the rock band “Līvi” – this band of musicians was a symbol of their time and was part of creating the Latvian vision for the world. The Tree of Ghosts is an impressive 6-metre tall tree made from 4000 metal bars.
The names of the most popular “Līvi” songs can be seen on the bricks laid around the tree and the contours of 5 different musical instruments are hidden in the branches. The names of the deceased band members are engraved on the trunk of the tree. The benches surrounding the tree are in the shape of guitar frets, and by pressing the buttons on the benches, songs from the rock band “Līvi” will start to play. Special lighting lights the tree in the evenings and at night.
