As far as art works go, it must have been one of the most exhausting to make. For the past two years, Barnaby Barford has been cycling around London, taking photographs of London's shops. At times he cycled over 50 miles a day.

The photos were then made into small porcelain ornaments which have been built into a 20ft-high (6.5m) tower. The Tower of Babel, as Barford has called it, is on display at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London from Tuesday. Barnaby Barford has built a tower from 3000 porcelain shops


At the base of the tower are derelict shops and pound stores, while at the top sit the city's most exclusive stores. All of the model shops are for sale, starting at 95 for those at the bottom, going up to 6,000 at the top.
