Watts Towers - A Labor of Art & Love

Italian Immigrant Simon (1879-1965) Rodia's dream to "make something big",
became a 33-year project (1921-54) in the Los Angeles, California community of Watts.
Built entirely by hand and without scaffolding, the towers rise to nearly
100 feet high and the surrounding construction is adorned with bits of pottery,
glass, rocks, mirrors, seashells, ceramic tiles and marble in a folk art manner.
