KAPOOR’S TANGLED TOWER

A £19.1m sculpture designed by Turner Prize-winning artist Anish Kapoor has been chosen as the monument to mark the London 2012 Olympic Games. The 115m tall piece, named the ArcelorMittal Orbit, will be 22m higher than New York’s Statue of Liberty. London mayor Boris Johnson, described it as “a super-sized mutant trombone.”
