…but the stairs keep going and going.

While Selaron purchased many completed artistic tiles or had tiles donated by others, he used many of them as a canvas for his own paintings.

Selaron was found dead on his stairs at the age of 65. At last, his work was complete. Escadaria Selaron lives on as major attraction in Rio de Janerio.
