Following in the tradition of other artists (Takashi Murakami & Tim Burton) who have had their iconic characters blown up for the famous Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, street turned contemporary artist KAWS will have the honor the next time the event comes around. The huge balloon (40 feet long, 34 feet wide and 30 feet tall) will be in the shape of his Companion figure covering his face with its gloved hands, as if he were ashamed or crying in a pose inspired by Rodin’s celebrated sculpture The Thinker.
