The monument was wrapped with twenty-five thousand square meters of recyclable silvery-blue fabric, held together by 3,000 meters of red rope. As it was one of the artist's wishes to follow through with the project, the intervention was carried out by his team, following the artist's passing in 2020. The project will be on display until October 3rd.
