A renowned pop artist Jeff Koons recently created a new sculpture in the middle of rockefeller center. It’s a 45 foot high inflatable nylon sculpture that towers above visitors to the iconic New York city plaza. This larger than life Seated Ballerina scaled up from the artist’s ‘antiquity’ series.

Symbolically, it refers to themes of beauty and connectivity, serving as a contemporary interpretation of the mythological goddess venus.

As she gazes down at passers-by, the delicate dancer mirrors the surrounding urban landscape and engages with each viewer as they approach.

With the idea of ‘reflectivity’ in mind, the installation seeks to raise awareness of national missing children’s month this May.
