This three-ton sculpture was commissioned by the city in 1954, to be part of a parking structure on West Wacker Drive. The work depicts a woman rising over the city, holding grain sheaves under her left arm while embracing a bull. When the garage was demolished in 1983, Milton Horn's sculpture was left to deteriorate in a forgotten field. Rediscovered in 1997, it now stands proudly above the Chicago Riverwalk.
