    Background: At Rifle Gap in
    Colorado on Thursday (10 August), a sculptor named Christo finally finished
    hanging a curtain across a canyon. Christo is widely known for wrapping up
    things -- such as cliffs, bays and buildings. But hanging a curtain across the
    canyon at Rifle Gap wasn't easy. He had been trying on and off for a year or so.

    The curtain is 12-hundred feet (366-metres) long and 850 feet (283-metres) high.

    The sculptor's wife, Mrs. Christo Javacheff, said the finished product was
    exactly as Christo pictured it in his drawings.

    On Friday, two thirds of the curtain was blown down.
