    Tulips is part of the highly acclaimed Celebration series, which relates to the cyclical year (birthdays, holidays, seasons, etc.) and a more general celebration of the cycle of life and values like innocence, pleasure and suspension of judgment. This image references Tulips, 1995-1998, a large-scale oil painting of a bouquet of balloon tulips against a reflective background, which was made of millions of shapes of color with hard edges and unleashes a kaleidoscope cascade of color. Tulips celebrates fertility, Spring, beauty, and romance. Koons wanted his Celebration series to be as objective as possible, so that everyone sees the same thing and shares a universal experience. "It is about a calendar year and how we may perceive different things within the course of a year. You can look at the Tulips painting or the Tulips sculpture and maybe it will make you think of Spring. I have always enjoyed flowers. Since taking art lessons as a child, I have had flowers in my work. I always like the sense that a flower just displays itself. The viewer always finds grace in a flower. Flowers are a symbol that life goes forward." - Jeff Koons
