Cloud Gate "The Bean" (Chicago/ Illinois)



Cloud Gate (also known as "The Bean") is a public sculpture by Anish Kapoor. It's located at Millennium Park in Chicago. Constructed between 2004 and 2006, the sculpture is made up of 168 stainless steel plates welded together, and its highly polished exterior has no visible seams.
Said to have been inspired by liquid mercury, the sculpture's surface reflects and distorts the city's skyline.
