In a stunning effort, Minujin, a pop artist from South America, has created "the Parthenon of Books"--a "Greek-style temple made out of banned books" that is on the site of Nazi book burnings in 1933 in Kassel, Germany, the local reported.

The temple is the main showpiece of Documenta, an art show held once every five years. Some 100,000 copies of 170 titles cover the columns, and each is wrapped in plastic to protect it from the weather.
