So This Happened...Marilyn Monroe Rises Again

(Photo by Timothy Hiatt/Getty Images)[Shine's daily spotlight of the most jaw-dropping photo from today's news. We don't even have the words for it, do you?]

Last night while you were sleeping, Marilyn Monroe's giant torso was hoisted up the side of a Chicago high-rise. The 26-foot-tall sculpture of the American icon has spent the past year hovering over the crowded Magnificent Mile district of the Windy City. She's now set to travel west to Palm Springs, California where she'll serve as public art in a new state for another 12 months.

Because of her enormous size (she weighs 40,000 pounds) she had to be split in two pieces and hauled out of the city by a crane. Not pictured: Marilyn's legs, waiting patiently for a lift.
