At $40,000, Marilyn Monroe makes for a good umbrella (PHOTO)

A massive statue of Marilyn Monroe at the desert resort city of Palm Springs, was recently photographed as a safe haven for those looking to avoid the Chicago rain.

The statue captures the iconic moment when Monroe blushingly held her dress down as a gust of wind billows the fabric around her from her memorable scene in the “Seven Year Itch.”

The group is seen huddled around Monroe’s legs and under her flowing dress as raindrops fall around the Windy City’s Pioneer Court.

The statue was created by 80-year-old artist Seward Johnson, an heir to the Johnson & Johnson fortune.

The artwork was previously in Chicago, and it took about a week and $40,000 to transport the statue.
