Canines maintain a large stature in Art. The monumental Puppy statue, who guards the door of the Bilboa Guggenheim Museum, proves it.
Puppy is a 40-foot-tall West Highland Terrier, covered with a living flower bed. Not at all realistic, but it shows you art is so important — it has a special license. Artists can stir your soul, without getting arrested.
I am very stirred, quivering all over. I would like to sniff the flowers at the base of that stature, in the back. Puppy is clearly Alpha of the Bilboa Guggenheim. (Who would waste snack allowance on the cost of indoor admission?)
Puppy Bilboa is happy, too. Watch the video and look for his tail wag.
Puppy artist: Jeff Koons. Bilboa Guggenheim Museum architect: Frank Gehry. The guy in the video is Jeff Koons.

Spectacular! Dogs make us smile, and flower dogs make us smile too.
Thanks, Animalista. 🙂
