Ai Weiwei’s golden zodiac at ARKEN Museum for ModernArt, Ishøj in Denmark.
Internationally acclaimed Chinese contemporary artist Ai Weiwei has reinterpreted the twelve bronze animal heads representing the traditional Chinese zodiac that once adorned the famed fountain-clock of the Yuanming Yuan, an imperial retreat in Beijing. Circle of Animals / Zodiac Heads is Ai’s first major public sculpture project. Created in 2010.
In May 2015, Sean Parker paid US$4.4 million at Phillips for the small (gold) version of the 12-sculpture work.
