This work is hand signed in pencil by the artist "Christo" at the upper left corner.It is also hand numbered in pencil from the edition of 125, at the upper left corner. There were also 20 hors commerce [out of trade] impressions. It was published in a limited edition of 125 signed and numbered impressions by Polígrafa, Barcelona. Note: In Christo’s Wrapped Women temporary sculptures, certain fundamental aspects that are latently inherent in the act of “wrapping” are revealed in a particularly explicit way. Revelation through concealment, spirituality and mysticism, the simultaneous veiling and emphasizing of the form, and fetishizing. The act of ›Wrapping‹ a female body in front of the audience may awaken associations with abuse and coercion, but also – more positively – may evoke an impression of protection, of a mantle.
