Wall Relief with Bird

Jeff Koons


Flowers, as an image and a medium, are a major leitmotiv in Jeff Koons’ work. A work that is part of his “Made in Heaven” series and influenced by the rich artistic traditions rooted in the Baroque, Rococo and Romantic periods, Wall Relief with Bird was realized by German and Italian artisans with traditional polychromed carving technique. With this brightly colored and captivated flower sculpture, Koons depicts the natural world as an idealized paradise, celebrating abundance of love, life and eternity while foreshadowing the artist’s subsequent classic works using real flowers as medium, including Puppy (1992).
