The Reflecting Point Maria defines an open place of fellowship, remembrance, and reflection for documenta fifteen. In 1896, a young girl, my great-grandmother Maria, planted this spruce tree in her native Sauerland. Hence the tree’s name, Maria. Sadly, it died of thirst last year due to climate change. The tree Marie lived to the age of 125.
