shown that only 5% of us are washing our hands for the _ _ seconds

11. During the years 1901-1902 Erik Lindberg was living in Paris. He

Another person Gustav Vigeland was asked to make a fourth one.
Lindberg's work was "reduced" in October 1901 at Janvier's in
Paris. It was completed only in September 1902 as the approval
process took a long time. In the meanwhile, the people who

him. Vigeland only made the basic design.
What were they making? Why was Vigeland unable to complete
his work?

how obvious or unnecessary they
may be.

people, especially kids have been choking on it since it invented,
and the large hole in it prevents that.
