In a sort-of reprise of Puppy, his 1992 massive outdoor topiary, Koons is erecting another floral public monument on the plaza in front of Rockefeller Center. Instead of a dog, Split Rocker—which rises 37 feet and sprouts 50,000 flowering plants—depicts a giant toy head that’s half rocking horse (modeled after one belonging to the artist’s son) and half plastic dinosaur.
