What you see here, is a Muhammad Ali monument made by artist Michael Kalish. It is 22 feet high, and is made out of 1,300 punching bags, 6.5 miles of stainless steel cable, and 2,500 pounds of aluminum pipe. Wired Magazine describes it best:
As you walk around the sculpture, you’ll just see interesting hanging bags. Step directly in front, however, and pow! Ali’s visage hits you like a punch in the face.
It will be unveiled at the Nokia Plaza in LA this month with Muhammad Ali himself hanging the final bag. More photos of the monument after the jump.
