The sculpture of Agora, located in the south end of Grant Park in Chicago, is designed by Magdalena Abakanowicz. It is comprised of 106 nine-foot tall headless torsos made of cast iron.

The name Agora refers to the urban meeting places of the Ancient Greek city-states.

Edward Kemeys’ lions are among the city’s most beloved and recognizable sculptures in Chicago. They are standing in front of the Art Institute of Chicago on each side of the building.

During the week of June 28th, these two lions were wearing the helmets to join the big celebration of the Blackhawks hockey victory  🙂
