This iconic sculpture was gifted to the city of Chicago by Pablo Picasso in 1967.
Though untitled, many have speculated on the subject matter of this abstract design. Guesses range from french actress Lydia Corbett to an Afghan Hound (my personal favorite)
Standing guard at Daley Center Plaza, the sculpture is beloved to tourists and Chicagoans alike, as they are able to climb on and slide down the base.
Rendering this delicate design in a buildable and sturdy form was certainly a challenge, but I was able to add some reinforcement columns at the rear for this purpose. I hope this will meet LEGO's structural requirements because I would LOVE to have this as a display piece one day. (301 pieces)
