The Greatest Sculpture of Muhammad Ali Ever!

Artist Michael Kalish and the architects at Oyler Wu Collaborative teamed up to create ReALIze, "the greatest" sculpture of Muhammad Ali EVAR!

The piece consists of an immense, two-story steel framework, more than five miles of cable, and more than 1,300 suspended speedbags.

This feat of gravity, with the bags hovering like hundreds of upside-down balloons, is enough to enthrall those passing through the plaza, but there's an even more powerful message. From just the right vantage point, the punching bags line up to create a giant pixelated image, a convincing portrait of the man formerly known as Cassius Clay.
