The formerly mysterious top half of a 26-foot statue of Marilyn Monroe in Chicago was revealed to the public Friday.
The bottom half of the sculpture, which depicts Monroe's subway-grate stance from "The Seven Year Itch," was revealed earlier in the week, but the top half had remained covered, sparking speculation that the face at the top may not be that of the famed actress, the Chicago Tribune reported Friday.
However, the full sculpture, by New Jersey artist Seward Johnson, was revealed to the public Friday as a faithful recreation of Monroe's image.
The statue, installed at Pioneer Court on Michigan Avenue, was sponsored by Zeller Realty Group.
