Asking why?

#SeeingRedSeries As I originally wrote in my previous post this guy looked like he may have been having some seriously deep thoughts, but when one moves over to the side a bit the mural literally looks as though this guy is looking at the Sears Tower looming out in the distance.

He is probably wondering: why such a weird shape for a skyscraper? I too were wondering the same and always wanted to know why “Sears” is actually a set of 9 towers of varying heights arranged in a 3×3 grid. A quick scan of Wikipedia explained that they had no clue what shape to pick and decided to make it look like  cigarettes partially pulled out of the pack at different lengths. That notion is as foreign and outdated by today’s standards as the Tower itself.
