Dom Pérignon makes Paleolithic Art Cool

French Champagne and Paleolithic Art make Dom Pérignon slightly more pretentious than previously thought

Venus of Willendorf- Mr. Koon’s inspiration behind the limited edition champagne bottle

If you have ever taken an art history class- and i mean ever- then you have studied this woman. Venus of Willendorf is a plump, 11centimeters tall, overly curvaceous woman made from oolite limestone. Paleolithic art normally doesn’t get much press, but it seems this beauty was the inspiration behind American artist Jeff Koons bottle remake for French brand Dom Pérignon. The sculpture in gold and magenta, opens to reveal the bottle inside the intricate creation promising that once you’ve finished your bottle you’ll still have a piece of art to proudly show off in your home.

Should you be swimming in money or just throughly enjoy a good glass of the bubbly- from the limited edition Balloon Venus, as the bottle is being called- the champagne can be purchased at selected stores throughout Prague starting on September 15.

Where to Buy your own artistic creation:
