In true form, Split-Rocker by Jeff Koons, an illustrious American artist born in York, Pennsylvania, is a cartoonish sculpture. But what sets it apart from his th majority of his previous creations such as his inflated sculptures is the fact that it is carved out of floral bushes just like his previous Puppy outdoor art installation.

Originally located in Palais des Papes, Avignon, Split-Rocker by Jeff Koons has been recently installed at the Rockefeller Center in New York City. Made up of two halves, the 150-ton and37 feet high sculpture of both a toy pony and a toy dinosaur. In addition to the plants, it is made up of stainless steel, soil, geotextile fabric and an internal irrigation system.
