Fun to watch. We all tried to interpret it and we all disagreed. Close to state street and very accessible.
Our tour guide said the statue is up for interpretation.. they said some said this is a woman with a long face.. or a swan.. my take? It's a dog. Excellent picture opportunity at the statue given as a gift by one of the greatest painters.
This sculpture was designed by Picasso specifically for this location - he didn't fabricate it, but made the model on which it was based.

The Picasso sculpture was installed in the 1960's ( I think...I was a kid) in what is now called Daley Plaza. No one really knows what it's supposed to represent, but that's part of the fun. Kids play on it, folks eat lunch nearby.
The statue is a Chicago icon and you can't miss it when walking around the look. Also on the Plaza is an entrance to the underground walkway that goes all the way to Macy's.
