Jeff Koons was asked to create a piece for Arolsen Castle in Bad Arolsen, Germany. "Puppy" was the result of this request. The West Highland White Terrier stands 43 feet tall and is covered in floral arrangements including Marigolds, Begonias, Impatiens, and Petunias. Its internal structure is made of transparent color-coated stainless steel. This piece stood out to me because of how obvious the dog breed was even though it was a completely different color and texture than that of the actual animal. The small distinctions were made clear even though it was all just flowers. Also, sometimes when I see an area of concentrated items I can find a face or item's image in the arrangement. This was similar to that experience for me which is why "Puppy" was the Koons piece i chose to focus on.
