This 2013 photo provided by Christie's Images Ltd. shows a model of Pablo Picasso's famed Chicago sculpture named "Tete," that will be auctioned next month. Christie's estimates it will sell for between $25 million and $35 million. The late Spanish artist created the piece, named "Tete," between 1962 and 1964. The iron and sheet metal model that goes to auction on Nov. 4 in New York is 41 ½ inches (11 centimeters) tall and 27 ½ inches (0.69 meters) wide. It was later made into the 65-foot (20-meter)-tall, welded-iron sculpture unveiled on Aug. 15, 1967 in Chicago's downtown Daley Plaza.
