I need help figuring out how much this is worth? Sign In/Join

Just wondering if anyone is familiar with this sculpture by Picasso? It was introduced in 1967 in front of the Daley bulding in Chicago. I have only been able to find a few on the internet but the prices seem to be from anywhere from 50-3500. Some of them say replica on them, this one however, does not. I believe this may be one of the originals? Any info you can give me would be appreciated--I found this in a flat of things I bought at an auction for $20.

Hi! I'm from Chicago. That's a replica of the Picasso sculpture they erected years back. You could buy them all over. I have a smaller one for a keepsake. Not worth much that I know of. I also have an original brick from State Street that they sold off years back when they took up the cobblestone. It's probably not worth much either-lol!

I believe its a replica.. Picasso was the first such major public artwork in Downtown Chicago, and has become a well known landmark.
