British-Indian artist Anish Kapoor unveils a look at its new mini-Bean sculpture in the Tribeca neighborhood in New York City. It is a project that has been in the works for years due to delays and it can be found along the tower at 56 Leonard Street.

It is meant to be a smaller version of the iconic Cloud Gate and the construction of the artwork took 4 years including all of the setbacks. Although it is referenced as the Mini-Bean currently, there has yet to be an official name for the structure. It features 38 stainless steel plates that are placed on top of a custom supporting framework and all of this has been welded together, sanded down, and polished.
