The mirrored exterior of Chicago's Cloud Gate sculpture, best known as "The Bean," has been photographed millions of times. But what does it look like from the inside?
Photos taken in 2005 as Cloud Gate was being assembled show coffered construction and the welding of the seams between what are essentially a series of stainless steel boxes. The whole process was done under a tent in what was to be Millennium Park.
Anish Kapoor, creator of “The Bean” visited Chicago Tuesday and posed for his first selfie with the sculpture. It marked his first trip back to Millennium Park since the work’s dedication in 2006. "It’s emotional, strange for me coming back,” Kapoor said. NBC 5's Sabrina Santucci reports.
