The artist skilfully transforms the familiar, childish motif of a monkey formed from a balloon into a sleek and weightless Celebration figure. In the process, Koons consciously makes reference to the allegorical meaning of the monkey with the wonderfully smooth, glossily polished surface of the Balloon Monkey: passion, sexuality and innocence united in a edition shaped exquisitely through perfect craftsmanship that cites the vocabulary of the iconic Celebration Series.
