SCULPTURE ON WHICH THE SHARD OF LONDON BRIDGE WAS BASED (2014)

it's easy to see the striking resemblance of the obelisk sculpture located at London bridge to the tallest building in Britain and Europe as of July 2015, the Shard (of glass) also located at, rather than on, London bridge. Did architect Renzo Piano see this tapering artwork and unconsciously use it as a basis for the design of the tapering Shard skyscraper? ;)
