Marilyn Monroe Sculpture in Chicago

A 26-foot-tall (8 m) sculpture of Marilyn Monroe in her most famous pose was unveiled on Chicago's Magnificent Mile. It is made ​​of stainless steel and aluminum, and weighs 15.5 tons. Sculptor in charge is Seward Johnson.

Passers-by wasted little time positioning themselves under her billowing skirt to get a subway-grate view of Monroe in the same stance as she appeared in the 1955 film "The Seven Year Itch."
