Lot Details

This sculpture is by famed Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, called "Mr Wink, Cosmos Ball." It is from an edition of only 3,000. They were given away as Christmas gifts in 2000 by the Peter Norton Family. It is Polychrome plastic with mini CD-ROM with music by Zak Yumiko. Stamped signature. From the Peter Norton Family Christmas Art Project. Most importantly, the sculpture contains the iconic Murakami Smiling Flowers motif. This is seen as an absolute "signature" image by the artist, this all-encompassing flower pattern is perhaps Murakami's most iconic and sought after to date, here it is encompassed in a very accessible sculpture.

Since 1988, Norton Family have been sending out limited edition art projects to family and friends. Perhaps the best of these was Murakami's Cosmos Ball! It is a great piece and comes with a CD by the band Zak Yumiko inside the ball. This is a highly interactive sculpture which you can look, touch, and hear.
