Pyramid Made from Oil Barrels: DNews Nugget
Pyramid Made from Oil Barrels: The acclaimed artists Christo and Jean-Claude, known for their larger than life installations are at it again. The duo who have strung a curtain between two mountains, wrapped an Australian coastline in silk and covered a Japanese countryside in umbrellas — to name just of few of their projects — is now going to build the world's largest pyramid and sculpture in the world.
Named the Mastaba, the flat-topped pyramid, will be built in Abu Dhabi, UAE, and be made from 410,000 multi-colored oil barrels. The structure will stand 492 feet high and measure 984 feet wide.
