Paris-Eiffel Tower (#39024)
SIZE: 27" x 19"
MADE BY: Clementoni
DESCRIPTION: The Eiffel Tower was created by Gustave Eiffel
and was officially opened on March 31st, 1889 in Paris, France. It created
a tremendous amount of controversy. The following is an extract from the
"Protest against the Tower of Monsieur Eiffel". "We come, we writers,
painters, sculptors, architects, lovers of the beauty of Paris which was
until now intact, to protest with all our strength and all our
indignation, in the name of the underestimated taste of the French, in the
name of French art and history under threat, against the erection in the
very heart of our capital, of the useless and monstrous Eiffel Tower,
which popular ill-feeling, so often an arbiter of good sense and justice,
has already christened the The Tower of Babel.
