Hailed as the “Holy Grail of Art” (we picture Monty Python’s King Arthur being taunted by the French, every time we write that sentence… ) when it went to auction, Jeff Koons’ happy “Balloon Dog Orange” fetched 58 million dollars from a lucky buyer. Now, thanks to the internets anyone can own a “Balloon Dog” … for a fraction of that price – for as little as $500, which is a tiny .001% of the auction price, according to artnet.
The dogs – which come in sizes up to 30-meters in length (that’s nearly 100-feet long!) are made by VLA Sculpture, and sold on Alibaba.
