Description   EN   

Welcome to the Bechtel Museum of Modern Art.  The piece of artwork at the posted coordinates is affectionately referred to by locals as the "Disco Chicken".  The actual title is "Le Grand Oiseau de Feu sur l’Arche" or "Large Firebird on an Arch" - what most visitors interpret as large, bowed legs is actually the arch that the firebird is sitting on.  Standing 17 feet tall and weighing more than 1400 pounds, the sculptures mirror-ball affect is achieved by over 7500 pieces of mirrored and colored glass. 

To claim credit for this cache, submit a photo of yourself or your GPS with the Disco Chicken.
