"Scala" Painted Stairs by Horst Gläsker

Last year we posted about a couple who penned excerpts of their grandparents love letters on their stairs. Inside your own home is one thing but Horst Gläsker raises the bar by combining emotional words with bright colors on a public German stairway.

We spotted these photos of artist and professor Horst Gläsker's "Scala" on Hue. He painted 112 steps, all conveying a different emotion or behavior associated with relationships. Examples include "to forgive", "to cuddle", "to offer resistance","to seduce", "to get the tinglies", "panic", "to flourish", and of course "love".

Should we ever be so lucky as to walk down this German street, there is no way we could resist the lure of strolling up these colorful stairs.
