Sculpture built for climbing

Art assistants help construct the "Big Bambu" structure, by twin brothers Mike and Doug Starn on the Metropolitan Museum of Art's roof garden in New York in this undated handout photo. Visitors to the Metropolitan Museum of Art will not only be able to view a new bamboo sculpture perched on the roof, they can also climb the 15-meterhigh structure. The sculpture, which is a work in progress, will contain 5,000 bamboo poles lashed together with 80 kilometers of colored nylon ropes.
