Pictures show Serpentine artwork getting close to its highest point
A giant stack of barrels designed by the artist Christo is taking shape in Hyde Park.
The 20m high artwork, which is being built on a platform floating on the Serpentine, is called Mastaba after its shape.
More than 7,000 barrels painted red, white, blue and purple are being lifted one by one into place on a steel scaffold by crane and hand.
