Jeff Koons 360000The Big Egg Hunt continues this week in New York City and the winner so far for the egg with the highest bid is Jeff Koons, Egg #271

He explains his work:  “When asked to create an artwork based on the egg for Elephant Family and Studio in a School, I immediately thought to incorporate a gazing ball into the work. The egg has been opened up in the center, making reference to modernist sculptures, which generally used the egg shape to refer to a family unit. As its base, we have the yin and yang, the masculine and feminine qualities of the animated seal and walrus, along with the sense of the family unit. The work displays enjoyment of both profound internalizing along with the experience of external vastness.”
