(AP) A model of Pablo Picasso's famed Chicago statue will be auctioned next month.

Christie's estimates it will sell for as much as $35 million.

The piece is a sheet metal model of the sculpture that stands in Chicago's downtown Daley Plaza. Picasso created the piece between 1962 and 1964.

The model that goes to auction on Nov. 4 in New York is 41 inches tall and 27 inches wide. It was later made into the 65-foot-tall, welded-iron statue unveiled on Aug. 15, 1967.

Christie's says Picasso saved this model for himself and sent a duplicate to Chicago to be used to create the sculpture. The piece is part of a larger auction of artwork from the private collection of renowned dealer Jan Krugier.
