Christopher Columbus Statue
Located, appropriately enough, along Columbus Drive in Grant Park, this is one of several statues of Christopher Columbus scattered across Chicago. It features Columbus gesturing toward the sky with one hand, and gripping a scroll (possibly a map?) in the other. The gesture is actually kind of weak, and it looks like he's hailing a cab, rather than pointing to any sort of celestial destiny.
