Paris’s Arc de Triomphe is wrapped in fabric

The iconic Paris’s Arc de Triomphe is wrapped in fabric!

“L’Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped” was Imagined in 1961 by the late Bulgarian-born artist Christo and has been finally brought to life by Christo’s nephew, Vladimir Yavatchev. The cost of the project is reported to be about 14 million euros ($16.54 million).

Christo Javacheff was known for his larger-than-life installations.

The installation will remain in place until 3 October, while the Arc de Triomphe will be accessible throughout the 16-day exhibition.


French President Emmanuel Macron on Thursday inaugurated a posthumous installation conceived by the late artist Christo that envelops Paris’s Arc de Triomphe monument in 2,500 square metres of silvery blue, recyclable plastic wrapping.

By doing so the Parasins have granted a reality to the dream of the late artist couple, Bulgarian-born Christo and his French wife Jeanne-Claude.

As quoted by French media, “As they gazed out of their window in the early 1960s, they imagined wrapping Paris’s Arc de Triomphe monument in fabric. They laid out detailed drawings and instructions on how to transform the landmark structure and today, their vision has been posthumously realised. We take a closer look.”

The Arc de Triomphe was built in the 1800s by French Emperor Napoléon Bonaparte to commemorate soldiers who died during his military campaigns.
