IPTC INFO
CaptionIn September 1990 a disastrous fire burnt the Valley of No Return during five days. After the fire thousands of donations poured in from all over the world to save the Valley’s mythical heritage. In 1991 to pay tribute to this international cooperation a Parisian sculptor François Davin's symbolic Golden Tree was created in August 1991 : a gilt chestnut surrounded by five black trees are protected from close approach by a circle of sharp stones. “The Gold of Broceliande” is an enormous golden chestnut tree with pure gold leaves. It symbolizes the immortality of the dreams of men of goodwill. Its branches evoke the antlers of stags the wild animals who led the knights through the enchanted forests.
