Thursday Zebra

A zebra?
I think some people in Marseille might be confused about the shape of zebras.
-Not that all those appearing on this blog have conformed to a standard!-
In Marseille they also have an extra-large giraffe.
It's made of books!
Yep. Tiled with paperbacks.
Like a bunch of street vendors of used books got fed up with never selling anything, so they got up a metal frame and put their books to another use.
One of the legs is starting to go.
It's not a permanent work of art.
I looked for Mister Cat high on the buildings, but had forgotten to check on line whether Mister Cat has even been to this city. So I don't know if I missed him, or if there aren't any.
There was plenty of other graffiti.
More on Marseille later!

Heh, what a diversity of zebras this week. I find the giraffe-thing quite fascinating, shame one of the legs is going on it.
