It measures 33 x 66 x 42 feet (10 x 20 x 13 meters) and weighs 110 short tons (100 tons; 98 long tons).

Kapoor's design is inspired by liquid mercury, and the surface of the sculpture reflects and distorts the city's skyline. Visitors can walk around under the 12-foot (3.7 m) high Cloud Gate Arch. At the bottom is "omphalos" ("navel" in Greek), which is a cavity that can bend and amplify reflections. The sculpture is based on many of Kapoor's artistic themes and is popular with tourists due to its unique reflective characteristics as an opportunity to take pictures.

The sculpture is the result of a design competition. After Kapoor's design was selected, in addition to the maintenance of the sculpture, there were many technical issues regarding design, construction and assembly. Many experts were consulted, some of whom thought the design could not be implemented. In the end, a feasible method was found, but the construction of the sculpture was behind schedule. When the Millennium Park was grandly opened in 2004, it was unveiled in an incomplete form and was hidden again after completion. Cloud Gate was officially put into use on May 15, 2006, and gained considerable popularity at home and abroad.
