Bulgarian Artist Christo to Build Giant Pyramid of 410,000 Oil Barrels for Abu Dhabi

Bulgarian environmental artist Christo has draped a mysterious array of landscapes and objects in a distinguishing orange hue since the 1960s but few of his installations have been as conceptually perplexing as his latest planned installation. The Mastaba is to be an enduring flat-topped pyramid of oil barrels located in the desert about 100 miles from Abu Dhabi. While oil-rich nations vie for the dubious accolade of having the “world’s tallest building,” Christo’s carving comprised of 410,000 oil barrels is set to make Abu Dhabi home to the world’s largest lasting sculpture.
