Danish artist Olafur Eliasson has refused to reveal just how tall the giant waterfall he has created at France's Palace of Versailles actually is.The artist has previously wowed New Yorkers with his 10-story urban waterfalls and Londoners with a huge trippy sunset at the Tate Modern gallery.An enormous fountain had featured in the original plans for the baroque 17th-century palace drawn up by Louis XIV's architect Andre Le Notre, but was never realized despite attempts to pump water over a hill from the river Seine.Eliasson's installations follow British-Indian artist Anish Kapoor's controversial "Queen's vagina" sculpture at the palace last year.Olafur Eliasson's works will be on show at Versailles Palace through Oct. 30 .
