    When you're dealing with a boxer who was, is, and will always be The Greatest, mere steel or stone just won't do. When crafting a temporary installation in tribute to Muhammad Ali, sculptor Michael Kalish went above and beyond the normal artistic mediums, choosing to hang 1,300 punching bags in careful arrangement to recreate the visage of the champion who floated like a butterfly and stung like a bee.
