LONDON — What will the future think of the world when they look back on the marks we have left? Will it be with the same reverence with which we gaze on the Acropolis hill and the Parthenon that sits upon it as a symbol of civilization and democracy or something less forthcoming?

Judging from the news that Christo is set to build the world’s largest permanent sculpture in Abu Dhabi, it seems we are about to be immortalized by something we know to be — though we would rather not admit it — the essence of our times: Oil.

The Mastaba, which has been estimated at a cool $340 million, will be built from nearly 400,000 oil barrels forming the shape of a flat-topped pyramid planned to be taller than the Great Pyramid of Giza. And although Christo has denied that the use of oil barrels comments at all on the UAE’s oil wealth (citing his 1960s work “Iron Curtain” when he blocked off a Paris street with oil drums), it is not just oil that is being commemorated here.

Don't worry, that pyramid will rust and collapse, seems a waste of money.

We used to be able to do this with massive precision-cut slabs of stones, each weighing tons if not 100's of tons, but now we do it with oil barrels. Evolution? De-evolution?
