watts towers April 7, 2006
Los Angeles, CA

The Watts Towers were built by Simon Rodia. The entire site consists of nine major sculptures constructed of structural steel and covered with mortar, adorned with a diverse mosaic of broken glass, sea shells, generic pottery and tile. They represent the labor of one man over about 33 years time. For more information, and there's a lot out there, simply Google "watts towers."
