Puppy, The Topiary Dog By Jeff Koons.

Puppy, The Topiary Dog By Jeff Koons.

Puppy, the dog flower sculpture by Jeff Koons is a permanent installation at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. Jeff Koons' works incorporates imagery using painting, sculpture, and other forms, often in large scale. It was in the year 1992 he was commissioned to create a piece for an art exhibition in Arolsen, Germany and the result was Puppy, a forty-three foot (12.4 m) tall topiary sculpture of a West Highland White Terrier puppy created in a variety of flowers on a steel substructure. Again in 1995 the sculpture was put up at the Museum of Contemporary Art on Sydney Harbour on a new, more permanent, stainless steel armature with an internal irrigation system. And it was in the year 1997 the piece was purchased by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and installed on the terrace outside the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao in Spain. Made of stainless steel, wood (at Arolsen only), soil, geotextile fabric, internal irrigation system, and live flowering plants, its something waiting to be admired!
