Good Monday from the ‘other’ Bean Town!

Good Monday from Chicagoland! This is a rather odd-looking thing, isn’t it? This sculpture is called, “Cloud Gate”, otherwise affectionately known as, “The Bean” to Chicagoans.Β  “The Bean”, as it were, is a sculpture designed by British artist Anish Kapoor.

TheΒ  elliptical sculpture is made from seamless, highly polished stainless steel plates, which reflect Chicago’s incredible skyline and the clouds above. A 12-foot-high arch allows visitors walk ‘beneath’ “The Bean”.Β  You can touch the mirror-like surface and see your image reflected back.


I quite like, ‘The Bean’; in the summer there are so many ‘bean groupies’ that there is barely a space underneath to see one’s own reflection.

So I reflect to you on this Monday, a great day from Chicago, bean-style! πŸ™‚
