With the support of the President of the Parliament, Rita Süssmuth, Christo and Jeanne-Claude worked to convince the elected Members of Parliament, going from office to office, writing explanatory letters to each of the 662 delegates and innumerable telephone calls and negotiations. On 25 February 1995 after a 70 minute debate at the Parliament and a Roll Call vote, the Bundestag allowed the project to go ahead.Just under 100,000 m2 of fireproof polypropylene fabric, covered by an aluminum layer, and 15 km of rope were needed. The wrapping began on 17 June 1995 and was finished on 24 June. The spectacle was seen by five million visitors before the unveiling began on 7 July.

Matthias Zdarsky, card with autograph. Selfmade with magazine-snippet on cardboard, signed by Matthias Zdarsky.

3,5 x 5,5 inches. (9 x 14 cm). Fine condition.

The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Mathias Zdarsky (1856 -1940) was an early ski pioneer and is considered one of the founders of modern Alpine skiing technique. He was probably Austria’s first ski instructor. He was also a teacher, painter and sculptor.

Inspired by Norway’s Fridtjof Nansen’s 1888 crossing of Greenland, he adapted skis for use on alpine terrain. In 1890 he developed a steel binding (the “Lilienfelder Stahlsohlenbindung”), which made steep mountain slopes and gate runs possible.

In January 1905, Zdarsky demonstrated the first steep downhill descent. To show the superiority of his ski technology, he skied the “Breite Ries” at Schneeberg, Austria. On 19 March 1905 he organized the first alpine ski race (on the Muckenkogel via Lilienfeld, Austria).
