Artist's Description

A close up of part of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Did you know that the tower is painted in three different colours with the darkest at the bottom so as to maintain a uniform look to observeurs on the ground? Also as a demonstration of the French psyche, the lift cables were cut in 1940 as the Nazis took over Paris, so that Hitler would have to walk to the top if he wanted to see the view. He arrived in Paris but refused to climb to the top, leading to the French saying that Hitler conquered France but not the Eiffel Tower. At the end of the conflict the parts that were apparently unavailable in wartime suddenly appeared and the lift was working again within months.
