The zodiac head installation, which is a recreation of the zodiac clock at Yuanmingyuan, the Garden of Perfect Brightness in China, is currently on display at the Copernicus Plaza located outside of the Adler Planetarium.

Chicago was the14th city to host the12 bronze animal heads that were sculpted by the Chinese political artist Ai Weiwei to represent the Chinese zodiac signs.

The Chicago Park District and the City of Chicago's Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events coordinated to bring the public art installation to Chicago in September 2014, and after a successful run, it will continue on its world tour.
