from Vogue:

Unless you are a Russian oligarch or a billionaire art collector, the closest you’ve probably come to owning a Jeff Koons original is by buying one of his coffee-table books. (In 2013, the 61-year-old artist sold Balloon Dog (Orange) for $58.4 million, which became the most expensive work by a living artist to be auctioned.) But now, thanks to Google, you can now snag a limited-edition Koons for the small price of $40.

Google’s latest Nexus “live cases” features three sculptures from Koons’s Gazing Ball series: Diana, Bust, and Mailbox. The three printed cases, which will be available for a limited time beginning May 10, also includes an animated wallpaper of the artist’s very first live-action video artwork called The Gazing Ball Ballet.

Koons worked alongside New York City Ballet dancers Troy Schumacher and Ashley Laracey for the live-action wallpaper. The dancers interpreted 28 movements from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake, while simultaneously holding onto a Gazing Ball.
