Pharaonic tomb at HydePark Lake

Using a collection of drums, the Bulgarian artist Christo built a sculpture in the form of an Egyptian Pharaonic cemetery on a lake at Hyde Park in London.

According to the British newspaper The Telegraph, Christo began working in the floating body in April, and included the installation of drums of 55 gallons in the form of pyramidal pieces installed on 32 fulcrums.

New York’s former mayor Michael Bloomberg, the president of the Sarpentine Galleries, saw the opening of the 20-meter high on Monday.

Christo and his wife, artist Jean Kud, who died in 2009, were famous for their work on portals at the Park Central Park in New York in 2005 and the Berlin Reichstag project in Berlin in 1995.
