The Magical Fruit

The Bean, a.k.a. Cloud Gate, is a public sculpture by Anish Kapoor in Millennium Park in Chicago, Illinois.  It’s made of 168 highly polished stainless steel plates, and stands 33 feet high, 66 feet long, and 42 feet wide, and weighs 110 tons.  Inspired by liquid mercury, it was designed to reflect the city’s skyline.  I just want to touch it!
