Feuerman and the likes of Taylor Swift and the Kardashians have Swan Fever. The hyper-realistic sculptor joins A-listers in celebrating a giant 7 foot long inflatable white swan.

Sales of the swan have skyrocketed and over 40,000 were sold this year alone. It has become the obligatory summer photo prop for Swift, Calvin Harris and a myriad of other limelighters.

Long before the inflatable Swan started making the rounds on the celebrity Instagram circuit - Feuerman took ‘Swanning’ to a whole new level and handcrafted and sculpted the Swan for her piece: Leda and the Swan in 2014.

The sculpture was featured in this year’s premier art event: The Venice Biennale. Feuerman’s show Personal Structures at Palazzo Mora was a huge success and crowds gathered to gape at the Swan. The sign that read “Do Not Touch” on the sculpture was interpreted as “Please poke, kiss, and sit on me” because people couldn’t get enough of the huge white bird.

Feuerman loves that Swanning has crossed the Atlantic!
