I guess in a city as old as Paris, the Eiffel Tower is still the new kid on the block, but in my eyes, it feels like such an iconic piece of the city, as if its always been there. There was something about that timeless feeling that inspired this vintage Eiffel Tower print. This print is also a collision of reality with fantasy in those beautiful stars falling over that iconic architecture.
It feels strange today but the Eiffel Tower was never intended to be around as long as it has been. It was built on the Champs de Mars to act as the entrance to the 1889 World’s Fair. It was only intended to stand for the next 20 years before being dismantled. It’s hard to believe now but the tower was built to be easily removed! Funny how that worked out isn’t it? Of course that never happened and today it’s a Paris landmark.
There is simply something about the graceful architecture you see in this vintage Eiffel Tower print that feels perfectly suited for a sepia tone fantasy. That beautiful iron lattice tower has that 19th century flair that still speaks of an era when steam engines were de rigueur. And it was an era of progress when it seemed as if the sky was the limit. It’s hard to imagine anything as grandiose as the Eiffel Tower being built today with such an intentionally short lifespan, isn’t it?
For a period of time, the Eiffel Tower was the tallest man-made structure on earth. The first construction to surpass the great pyramid in Egypt in thousands of years. When I imagine the audacity of that, it feels like humanity was reaching for the stars once more in that golden age. And that is the inspiration for the stars falling in this vintage Eiffel tower print.
Whether or not you’ve stood on the Champs de Mars in Paris, I think this sepia-toned fantasy of that Paris landmark will speak to you as it does to me. I would love it if you took a moment from your day to let me know what speaks to you most about this Paris artwork!
