Bye, bye, Venus

The "Balloon Venus" by Jeff Koons was our guest at the NHM Vienna from September 29th 2015 until March 14th 2016. Now we have to say good bye! 

The „Venus of Willendorf“ was an inspiration for artist Jeff Koons : enthralled by her beautiful form, he created a monumental, mirror-polished stainless steel sculpture of this famous fertility figure as if she was constructed from a single balloon – “Balloon Venus (Orange)” 2008-2012.
