Eiffel Tower, detail.
"Gaze, object, symbol, the Tower is everything that man puts in it, and that everything is infinite. Show watched and watching, useless and irreplaceable building, familiar world and heroic symbol, witness of a century and an always new monument, inimitable and endlessly reproduced object, it is the pure sign, open at all times, to all images and all senses, the unbridled metaphor; through the Tower, men exercise this great function of imagination, which is their freedom; as no history, so dark it may be, has never been able to steal them."
-Roland Barthes, "La Tour Eiffel", 1964
