China News Agency, Paris, September 18th (Reporter Li Yang) On the 18th local time, the weather in Paris, France was sunny and autumn was full.

"The Wrapped Arc de Triomphe" art project was officially opened to the public on the same day.

On September 16, local time, the inauguration ceremony of the Arc de Triomphe parcel project in Paris, France was held.

  A reporter from China News Agency saw at the scene that the Arc de Triomphe was completely wrapped by 25,000 square meters of recyclable fabric and fixed with a 3,000-meter-long red rope.

All fences and materials used for construction have been completely cleared.

  The Place de Gaulle where the Arc de Triomphe is located on the 18th banned any vehicles from entering, allowing people to enter the square to visit the art projects. The entrance is located on the Champs Elysées.

Due to the current period of the new crown epidemic, the relevant epidemic prevention measures are still effective, and people must show a health pass to enter.

  The reporter saw that a large number of people scrambled to take pictures of the "Parceled Arc de Triomphe", and many people also stepped forward to touch the parcel materials of the Arc de Triomphe.

Everyone was in high spirits. There were many young people kissing under the Arc de Triomphe, and a group of young people dancing on the Champs Elysées in front of the Arc de Triomphe.

On September 16, local time, the inauguration ceremony of the Arc de Triomphe parcel project in Paris, France was held.

  People also have the opportunity to come to the top of the Arc de Triomphe and watch this art project from a unique perspective.

Many people lined up under the Arc de Triomphe, waiting to board the Arc de Triomphe.

The time indicated on the sign shows that the people at the end of the line need to wait at least 45 minutes.

  The late Bulgarian artist Christo named the art project "L'Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped".

He and his wife Jeanne Claude have been conceiving since the 1960s.

However, before Christo was alive, the art project was not realized.

Christo’s nephew Yavachev became the actual executor of the implementation of the art project and fulfilled his last wish.

  According to Christo's idea, wrapping famous landmarks such as the Arc de Triomphe conveys "hidden" information, trying to show that things in front of you may be fleeting, and you should look at things around you with a whole new perspective.

  The French government and the City of Paris strongly support the "Arc de Triomphe Wrapped" art project.

French President Macron expressed the hope that people can perceive a brand-new Arc de Triomphe through this art project.

  The "Parc de Triomphe Wrapped" art project will be open to the public until October 3, after which the fabric and red ropes that wrap the Arc de Triomphe will be removed one after another.
