This outsized plush version of one of Yayoi Kusama’s famous pumpkins makes an unusual throw pillow, centerpiece or just overall attention-getting home accent. Available in red or yellow. Made in Japan of nylon, this throw pillow measures 21.5 inches diameter.
The pumpkin is one of Yayoi Kusama’s most well-known motifs, and the artist employs the gourd as both an allegory and a form of self-portraiture—in paintings, drawing, sculptures and installations. She is drawn to pumpkins as a muse because of their “charming and winsome form, their generous unpretentiousness and solid spiritual base.” Kusama’s work is represented in MoMA’s collection.
