The bulgarian artist, world famous for his land art interventions on landscapes and urban landmarks, has set up a floating runway on Lago d’Iseo, an alpin lake in nortern Italy.

Thousands of visitors come everyday to experience the feeling of walking on the waters.

Asked about the meaning of his work, Christo said “come and feel it, the meaning is not my problem”.

The 81 yesrs old artist, asked when he’ll retire, answers “An artist doesn’t retire, he just dies”.

In this work he probably plays with his name too, as “Christ wallking on the waters” of Tiberiade lake is one of the most famous pages of New Testament in the Bible.
