The Arc de Triomphe in Paris has been dressed up as part of a new art installation by late couple Christo and Jeanne-Claude who conceived of the project in 1961.

It’s completedly wrapped in silver and blue fabric.

For the next three weekends, the Arc de Triomphe’s traffic-heavy roundabout will be entirely devoted to pedestrians.

Visitors to the famous Napoleonic arch, which dominates the Champs-Elysees Avenue, will not only be able to see the gleaming fabric, but also touch it as the artists had intended.

And those climbing the 50 meters to the top will step on the fabric when they reach the roof terrace.
