That sculpture at the V&A

A couple of days ago I posted a photo I had taken of a sculpture in the V&A courtyard. Being the completist I'm known to be, it's been bugging me that I failed to identify it as Diamond (Pink) by Jeff Koons, which was on temporary loan to the museum. It's a highly polished chromium stainless steel construction which entertained me most with its interesting reflections of the surrounding buildings. It was a gloriously sunny day, which also helped show the piece to best effect. I'm not sure I would have liked it anywhere nearly as much had it been placed in a "white cube" gallery space.

Here are a few more shots I took which illustrate its "reflective" aspect, and also one I'm quite proud of which I'll just call "Pink" (it's a sort of postmodern minimalist pastiche).
