In the late '90s Arkin gained wide recognition as one of the original cartoonists-in-residence at the now defunct Artnet Magazine. He later developed those satirical works into sculptural pieces that typically reference the art world and some of its most recognizable faces and work.
This limited edition sculpture — a nod to Jeff Koons' "Gazing Balls" series — is cast in resin and accompanied by a plexi case. While the sculpture stands on its own, it also comes with a removable golden thread to make it a "dysfunctional object, as Arkin terms it, that can do double-duty as a holiday ornament.
