I love seeing these guys when it snows.  Impressive in any weather, the Board of Trade Building is sparely adorned with Art Deco ornaments representing trade and the commodities, the general theme being harvest and abundance—not to mention wealth, for those who grow rich through farming and trade.

Flanking the big clock are these two figures, an Egyptian and a Native American, holding wheat and corn.  Also (I never realized this before), the ornaments elsewhere on the facade are bulls!
