Vases by Jeff Koons

Vases by Jeff Koons

For Split Rocker, Koons was Inspired by his son’s rocking horse and a toy dinosaur. Koons melded the two heads into one Picasso-like asymmetrical whole, with “handles” protruding from each side. The Puppy vase, transforms a lovable figure into a statement piece. These figures become more than just symbols, they become icons.
