I have been a Chicagoan all my life and have always enjoyed this statue! I was reunited with it recently while taking a lunch break doing my civic duty serving on a jury! It was the highlight of my week!

The sculpture is located on Daley Plaza. Well worth a visit to see how you interpret Picasso’s piece.

When I lived in Chicago I heard many different descriptions of the Cosso‘s artwork. Some saw as a horses head while others thought it was of a toilet seat left up. Whatever it is that you see it’s what Picasso had in mind, keeping you...More
