Jeff Koons: Banality Series Platter

Regular price Regular price $558

Designed by Jeff Koons in collaboration with Bernardaud, this limited-edition oval platter features a reproduction of his sculpture Ushering in Banality (1988). To realize this polychromed wood work, Koons commissioned professional carvers from Oberammergau, a Bavarian village that has produced religious statuary for centuries.

Koons states, “With Ushering in Banality I felt that God was on my side and that I really didn’t care what anybody thought of this work. I think of this as autobiographical. That little boy in the back is me, I was ushering in banality. I felt that what I was doing was very moral, that’s why these cherubs are there.”
