This sculpture is commissioned by Neumarkt Galerie. The guy who created this work of art Claes Oldenburg. This sculpture was installed March 2001.
In her presentation of the work, Coosje referred to the Dropped Cone as both a "cornucopia of consumerism" and a "sign of transience." It was so it could be part of the architecture around it. He made it so the ice cream would be dripping down the windows. Getting the cone up on the building was a difficult process.
