This monumental outdoor sculpture with multi-dimensional sections, represents
an imaginary moment in time when a huge bowl of orange slices and peels
drops to the ground and shatters. The artwork includes eight bowl
fragments in cast concrete with an overall weight of 124,000 lbs., four peels
in steel plate with painted surfaces, and five orange sections executed in
reinforced cast resin. Oldenburg is best known for his gigantic food
constructions and his daily object soft sculptures.
