Jeff Koons, Play-Doh, 1994–2014. Polychromed aluminum; 120 × 108 × 108 in. (304.8 × 274.3 × 274.3 cm). Bill Bell Collection. © Jeff Koons

This is probably my favorite piece from Jeff Koons because Play-Doh was one of my favorite things to play with as a child. Playing with Play-Doh really allows a child to be creative and allows them to essentially make whatever they can imagine. Koons used his son's first Play-Doh creation as inspiration for this piece. Although this sculpture looks simple to the eye, it took Koons two decades to create and is made from twenty-seven individual pieces of painted aluminum.
