Pink Panther

Pink Panther by Jeff Koons

Pink Panther        
Jeff Koons (b. 1955)
Porcelain, 1988.

think she’s a mermaid?

CROE: maybe!
i hadn’t thought of that
i guess that might explain why a cat would hold on for dear life

TARBOT: yes, the PP does seem a bit spooked

CROE: you’d think he’d be a bit happier that close to her chest

TARBOT: well not all cats like to be picked up / held
though it is a bit odd that she’s half naked…
unless she IS a mermaid
in which case, it’d be ok

CROE: then she’s in her natural state

TARBOT: exactly

CROE: according to a blurb about it, the mermaid is supposed to be Jayne Mansfield,
an actress in several movies i’ve never heard of
The Girl Can’t Help It (1956), Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? (1957), and The Wayward Bus (1957)

TARBOT: the name sounds familiar
though Mansfield just reminds me of a serial killer
back to the blurb: “On one level Koons’s humor is pleasurably sophomoric. His mating of Jayne Mansfield and the eponymous cartoon character in Pink Panther is a thoroughly enjoyable send-up of heterosexual rapture and celebrity romance”
um… beastiality?
I’m confused

CROE: so…
the way she’s holding him
almost makes him look like a child

TARBOT: I can see that yeah
well that’s why the sexy bits didn’t cross my mind
it all just looks bizarre
like it doesn’t fit together

CROE: i agree
