The Arc de Triomphe was wrapped in cooperation with the artist’s nephew Christo, the Pompidou Museum and the French authorities

Huge curtains were dropped on the Arc de Triomphe on the Champs Elysees avenue in the French capital, Paris, in preparation for its complete wrapping, in honor of the late artist Christo and the realization of one of his unfulfilled artistic dreams in his life.

This landmark will wrap the center of the French capital with about 25,000 meters of recyclable fabric made of polypropylene in silver and blue colors in the next few days.

Crowds of people gathered in front of this monument, which is one of the most famous landmarks of France, to watch the packaging process, which began on Sunday.
