Baiterek Monument, Kazakhstan

From NatGeo: Photograph by Gerd Ludwig, National Geographic Site [http://photography.nationalgeographic.com/photography/photographers/photographer-gerd-ludwig/] The Baiterek, towering over the central promenade in Astana, Kazakhstan, flares green against a dappled evening sky. Intended as a symbol of the new capital, the 318-foot monument evokes a giant tree with a golden egg in its branches. In the Kazakh myth of Samruk, a sacred bird lays a golden egg in the branches of a poplar each year.
