Glitz and Bling of 'The Simple Things'

This sculpture was created by artist Takashi Murakami, musician Pharrell Williams and jeweler Jacob & Co for the Art Basel fair this year. Jacob recreated a selection of everyday objects chosen by Pharrell in premium metals and glitzy jewels. The jewel encrusted products including Pharrell's Ice Cream sneakers, a Pepsi can and a condom are placed in the mouth of Murakami's sculpture forming this wacky installation.
