According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the 27-foot-tall, 15-ton copper and steel sculpture will be dismantled on Tuesday morning.
It has been on a one-year lease from the Chinese government.
“We tried to borrow it for a longer period of time, 18 months, but we were not able to,” Luis Cancel, the Art Commission’s director of cultural affairs told the paper.
The piece “was selected to mark the 30th anniversary of San Francisco’s sister city relationship with Shanghai.”
City officials are currently looking for the next “temporary art installation” for the area.
