It was saved by the man whose job it was to remove the tree where it was hidden. It will be relocated. Stay tuned...
There is a statue of Confucius in The International Sculpture Garden which is part of Hermann Park's Houston Garden Center. Go to the Houston Garden Center and park in their lot. Keep to the right side of the lot if you are facing the main entrance. You should have no trouble finding parking since the Garden Center is closed for renovations until October of 2014.
Take the Marvin Taylor Trail from the parking lot. It is a wide crushed granite path flanked by live oak trees. The Garden Center will be on your left and the golf course will be on your right. Just before reaching an exercise station, take the path to the left. You will pass some picnic tables on your right and the Chinese Pavilion on your left. Before reaching a street, veer left off the path towards a grove of multi-trunked trees. The box is within the tree closest to the Chinese Pavilion, buried under a mat of ball moss.
There is a bonus awaiting you if you have the good FORTUNE to be the first finder.
