It will take hundreds of people and 30 months to build ‘The Mastaba of Abu Dhabi’.
The big flat topped pyramid would be bigger than the Great Pyramid of Giza.
I wonder if the design of this sculpture will be similar to Egyptian mastaba.
Herald Sun reported that the 150 metre Mastaba will be made out of 400,000 multi-coloured oil barrels.
It’s hoped the $325 million Mastaba sculpture, which will be built in the desert 161 kilometres away from Abu Dhabi, will become a landmark for the region.
Abu Dhab is aiming to make Mastaba a centre of art and culture.
Christo and his late wife Jeanne-Claude were inspired by the colours of the desert and the tall sand dunes, came up with the idea of building the sculpture about 30 years ago.
“When the sun rises, the vertical wall will become almost full of gold,” Christo said of the artwork.
I hope that one day I could design something great and interesting too.
