Bunch of Tulips by the Hungarian Peter Koros is literally a blown up interpretation of the Dutch tulip mania.

The Netherlands exported almost two billion bulbs per year then. By recreating tulips in a big inflatable installation his tulips can be seen as a Pop Art work. His kitsch approach gives this historic and touristic symbol a new context.
