'Landscape with Gun and Tree' is a nine-metre-tall shotgun that leans against a tree. The gun is made of cast iron and Corten steel so it will continue to rust over time.

'Landscape with Gun and Tree' is a sculptural representation of Robert Wilson’s hunting shotgun, scaled up to rival the height of the surrounding trees. Parker took inspiration from Thomas Gainsborough’s painting Mr and Mrs Andrews (c.1750) which shows a newly married couple posed with their country estate stretching into the distance behind them. Mrs Andrews sits on a garden bench, her hands (unfinished) on her lap. Mr Andrews stands behind her, his gun over his arm, their dog at their feet. Parker had toyed with the idea of calling her sculpture 'Mr and Mrs Wilson', but on seeing the finished installation, renamed it 'Landscape with Gun and Tree' – a suitable nod to other Gainsborough titles.
