Perfect Love Lotion by Jeff Koons

Allegedly, after Jeff Koons’ ex-wife Ilona Staller (a.k.a. porn princes/hardcore art collaborator/siren/topless politician la Ciccolina) kidnapped their son, he founded the Koons Family Institute on International Law and Policy. Now buy this 2011 Edition of Kiehl’s moisturizer for charity featuring Koons’ “balloon flowers” aka “a symbol for perfect love.” Since it’s for a kids’ charity, maybe Christie’s catalog writers got it wrong describing it as “overtly erotic?”

According to Christie’s, it’s got petals that “form an orifice-like fulcrum” and “the sculpture’s curving, swollen forms suggest a sexually aroused and inviting body.” So… Since Jeff Koons isn’t like to begift a children’s charity with a shiny swollen member, looks like we’ve got a male Georgia O’Keeffe “that’s not labia”-style misunderstanding.
