Balloons Venus Sculpture by Jeff Koons for Dom Pérignon Rose

Jeff Koons has teamed up with luxury champagne, Dom Pérignon, to design a sculpture for their Rosé 2003. Pop artist and sculptor is best known by his Tulips– a large steel and chromium bouquet of multi-coloured tulips which was sold for $33.6 million in November last year, setting a new auction record for the artist in the process. His latest artwork which contains a bottle of Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage 2003 is actually the miniature version (two-foot) of original Balloons Venus Sculpture in high chromium stainless steel currently on exhibit at the Gagosian Gallery in Manhattan.

For the price of $20,000 you’ll get polyurethane resin sculpture – the cheapest Jeff Koons artwork, but the most expensive package of all of Dom Pérignon‘s collaborations including the brand’s past collaboration with Andy Warhol. Only a few hundred sculptures will be produced and those will be out for sale only by September.

The original Balloon Venus was inspired by the Venus of Willendorf, a statue over 25,000 years old that was discovered in 1908 in Austria.

“I’m very proud of the “Balloons Venus,’” says Koons. “It’s a work that I enjoy and I think really represents my oeuvre of work. “Balloon Venus” represents the continuation of life’s energy. A great vintage also represents the vintages that will come, and so it’s about the continuation of something. It’s a continued creative process.”
