Description:

A work of art, both stunning and problematic, is composed of a variety of materials, including 1,494 Venetian glass prisms and an internal 79-bell carillon. Installed near Little Tokyo, the sculpture measures six stories high and weighs around 60 tons. It was created in 1975 by Joseph Young, but he didn't get quite the response he wanted. His sculpture was called a nuisance and it required thousands of dollars in maintenance and repair. Even with some less-than-ideal nicknames, the sculpture still stands - you can determine whether it is a masterpiece or an eyesore.
