The Eiffel tower, the undisputed symbol of France in particular, and the Western World in general, received, upon its construction, extreme criticism from Paris' intellectual elite for its ugly, tough and metallic look. This piece aspires to fix this impression, giving the tower an alternative, young and colorful look, resembling melting ice cream, that is more fit to represent the lively and cheerful city.
