From larger than life stainless steel animal balloons to photo realistic oil paintings Jeff Koons collection of work is simple but continues to amaze us.

Back in 1992, this York, PA native created a forty-three foot tall sculpture of a West Highland White Terrier puppy appropriately named Puppy. This topiary sculpture was almost blown up before its dedication to the Guggenheim Museum Balbao in Spain. A trio that posed as gardeners tried to plant explosive-filled flowerpots near the sculpture. Time to call the Anti-Cruelty Society!

You can check out more pictures of his innovative work at his official website. Better yet, plan a trip to Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art, who has found a safe but temporary home for you to come enjoy his work (opening May 31, running through, September 21, 2008).
