BURBANK, CA (FOX 11) - After a couple weeks of mystery, the Ikea store in Burbank, California unveiled the final version of its public sculpture on Friday. The modern art will be displayed in front of their store on San Fernando Road in Burbank.
Before it was unveiled, it was wrapped in white material, and many people wondered what it was. Reps only said it is by artist Christian Moeller, who is a renowned artist and art professor at UCLA. The sculpture is part of the Art in Public Places ordinance. Some say it looked like a crooked bowling pin or a flower vase. But from certain angles, it looked a lot like a phallic object.
The base of the sculpture is orange and white, with the neck tilted forward with a yellow ball protruding out from the top. The ball moves around when there’s a lot of wind.
