The Garden of Stars is an annual sculpture garden;
This year's aim was to bring an ode to the sun: immense, indivisible, imperishable, and everywhere present.
Thirteen artists made a work based on (the adoration of) the sun, making the garden a place to become aware of its omnipresent power.

“Gràcies pel Blat” is a sculptural installation that consists of tableware, positioned in a circle of sand. The title refers to the cutlery made out of wheat.
Sun worship is in some cultures celebrated by sharing a meal. Common are the dough dishes.
