On the occasion of Documenta 4 (1968) in Kassel, Christo and Jeanne-Claude created, by then, the largest ever inflated structure without a skeleton; a seven ton air package consisted of an envelope made of 2,000 square meters made of fabric, PVC and ropes. It took two weeks and a pair of the tallest cranes in Europe to elevate the inflated air package from its horizontal position on the ground, depicted in this work on offer, to its final vertical position.
