Caption

'Cloud Gate,' by British sculptor Anish Kapoor, is a 110-ton wonder nicknamed "The Bean" because of its shape. People flock to Chicago's Millennium Park to see themselves reflected in its stainless steel surface.

On the underside, The Bean's many curves create the effect of a kaleidoscopic funhouse mirror.
