Artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude

Who doesn't love wrapping? Christo and Jeanne-Claude certainly love wrapping everything from trees, the Reichstag in Berlin, Kunsthalle in Bern, Islands and plenty of other amazing places. From their website: "Starting on Friday, November 13, 1998, 178 trees were wrapped with 55,000 square meters (592,034 square feet) of woven polyester fabric (used every winter in Japan to protect the trees from frost and heavy snow) and 23.1 kilometers (14.35 miles) of rope. The wrapping was completed on November 22." Photos were taken by Wolfgang Volz.
