Wall of Love in 2010

The Wall of Love (French: Le mur des je t'aime, lit. the I Love You Wall) is a love-themed 40 square metres (430 sq ft) wall in the Jehan Rictus garden square in Montmartre, Paris, France. The wall was created in 2000 by calligraphist Fédéric Baron and mural artist Claire Kito[1] and is composed of 612 tiles of enamelled lava, on which the phrase "I love you" is featured 311 times in 250 languages.[1] Each tile is 21 by 29.7 centimetres (8.3 in × 11.7 in). The red splashes on the wall symbolize parts of a broken heart.[2]

The wall is open to public free of charge.
