Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs Completed

After many failed attempts and lots of frustration the tower of bird nests is complete. I love it. I now want to create an inverted one with the nest on the bottom being the smallest because human's have sort of messed up the order of what they want.  This concept is inspired by a conversation with my husband. Young people want all the things from the top  for example fulfillment when they don't have shelter yet,  haven't really worked yet or  have stability or security. The young people are wanting recognition and mastery of a subject but haven't done some of the things on the other layers of the heirarchy.  The sides of the glass boxes are open intentionally to symbolize that moving from one layer to another is very possible.
