Paris' Arc de Triomphe is transformed into a tribute to late artist Christo

Description

After weeks of preparation, the Arc de Triomphe in Paris is nearly fully wrapped in fabric, in a tribute to late artist Christo. The monument is being covered in 25,000 square metres (270,000 square feet) of fabric -- the signature of the Bulgarian-born artist, who died last year.
