The written word erects :))

Artist Marta Minujin, Argentina latest creation – a spiraling, 25-meter-tall (82-foot) tower meant to pay homage to the written word.

Placed in  the Plaza San Martin, in the heart of the Argentine capital – “The Tower of Babel” — built from 30,000 books, most of them donations from some 50 embassies.

Artists view point – “I don’t know why we have to have different languages” ; “It’s really amusing to be able to climb up and down a work of art ” – guess I don’t have an eye for art 🙂
