Sculpture "The Bean" Cloud Gate, Chicago (with Map & Photos)

In the heart of Millennium Park is a bob-shaped stainless steel arch - Cloud Gate. In a short time, this sculpture has become the hallmark of Chicago and the most photographed object. As conceived by the creator, it is a Cloud Gate in Chicago, but the Americans called it "The Bean". Skyscrapers, endless sky and funny figures of visitors distorted by crooked mirrors are reflected in the mirrored polished surface of "Bean".

The sculptor from India, Anish Kapoor, was inspired by space when creating the object. To feel yourself in a magical outer space, it is enough to stand under the arch and look around at the concave plates, repeating this action on a sunny day and late in the evening.
