Christo unveiled 7,506 colored barrels floating on a lake in central London Monday, a puzzling installation designed to stimulate debate as much as the senses. "The London Mastaba" on the Serpentine in Hyde Park, a trapezium-shaped work weighing 600 tons, was launched with an air of mystery by the Bulgarian-born U.S. artist.Twenty meters high, 30 meters wide and 40 meters long, some may see the metal barrels and wonder if there is an environmental message, thinking of barrels of oil in the heart of one of London's green lungs.Christo's first major open-air art installation in Britain is in the shape of a mastaba, a type of ancient Egyptian tomb.The artist has long appreciated the low cost and aesthetic appeal of working with barrels.
