Overview

Located in Daley Plaza, this sculpture that resembles a metal baboon is one of the many masterpieces created by the world famous artist himself. Also known as the 'Untitled Sculpture', this massive sculpture is 50 feet in height and weighs 162 tons. Picasso refused an offer for USD100,000 at the time from a private collector, but instead gifted his work to the city. People believe that the sculpture might have been an inspiration from an English woman, Lydia Corbett, who posed for Picasso in 1954!
