Summer Art Installation | Serpentine Gallery

The Summer art installation at the Serpentine gallery in London’s Hyde Park is firmly in place.  Which is no mean feat when you consider that The Mastaba (basically a pyramid without a peak) is actually floating on the Serpentine.DSC_0242.JPGDesigned by internationally acclaimed artist Christo, it is his first major public, outdoor work in the UK.  The footprint of the sculpture is approximately 30 metres wide (at the 60° slanted walls) x 40 metres long, taking up approximately 1% of the total surface area of the lake.DSC_0251.JPG
