The sizes are monumental. When a Celebration is exhibited, it is impossible to ignore it. The themes are simple and symbolic enough to be understood anywhere in the world regardless of the culture of the visitor.
Celebrations have been surface coated in a process specially developed to offer an intense reflectivity and the smoothing curves are so perfect that the observer admires the sculpture without appreciating that it is a technical feat.
The monochrome subjects, probably less difficult to realize, were the first to be completed, in 1999 and 2000: diamond, hanging heart, balloon flower and balloon dog. The moon is one of these pioneering themes.
On November 11 in New York, Sotheby's sells the yellow specimen of the Moon, lot 33 estimated $ 12M.
This piece 315 cm in diameter and 102 cm thick completed in 2000 is notable for two reasons. Its color is logical for the popular interpretation of our satellite and its wide uniformly convex front side is certainly the most beautiful distorting mirror in the entire series.
