Daily Picture 20-Feb-10: ‘Violin’ Shape Art Deco Stairs Tower

The stairs tower of a mid-1930s Art Deco style house in Arc de Triumf - Piata Scanteii area of Bucharest. It has the very peculiar stylized shape of a 'violin' or similar string instrument, presumably an allusion that the house was the residency of a musician, etc. (©Valentin Mandache)
