A team of mountain climbers were drafted in to work on a giant bamboo installation at the Billy Rose Art Garden at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem this month.

The art work was designed by American artists, Doug and Mike Starn, who are identical twins, and are famous for their large-scale installations, constructed from bamboo.

The installation in Jerusalem is made up of thousands of bamboo canes tied together with colored string.

The exhibition opens on June 10, and runs until October 1. Visitors will be able to enter the constructions, walk around, and even climb on the bamboo.
