Critics of Jeff Koons’ floral tribute to Paris victims raise a stink

A sculpture offered by American artist Jeff Koons to honor the victims of the terrorist attacks in Paris in 2015 is causing controversy, report the Guardian and Agence France-Presse.

The piece, called Bouquet of Tulips, is a large hand clutching colorful flowers, has been deemed a “product placement”, inappropriate and in the wrong location. Objections have also been raised that French artists had no chance to make a memorial.

One hundred and thirty people were murdered in the terrorist attacks on the Bataclan concert hall and other sites around Paris on November 13, 2015.
