This Christmas, Kanye West surprised fiancee Kim Kardashian with an ostentatious yet truly priceless gift – an Hermes Birkin bag that features a surrealist hand-painted nude figures by a well known artist George Condo.
The 33-year-old Kim K showed off this state-of-the-art creation via Instagram on Thursday, Dec. 26 and captioned it: “#HandPaintedGeorgeCondo #HermesBirkin #OneofOne #ChristmasPresentFromYeezy.”
Kardashian flaunted her gift this week when she went out shopping with West, 36, in Woodland Hills, Calif. Wearing a simple all-white outfit, the star let her bag to be the center of attention for everyone.
This outrageous Christmas gift also reminds us of Condo’s work from West’s 2010 album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. The artist portrayed five covers, including one of a naked sphinx straddling Kanye on a blue couch, which was banned by both Wal-Mart and iTunes.
As for the controversy surrounding the artwork, Condo told Vulture that he was really shocked at the way people perceived on a cartoon. “What’s happening in their minds should be banned. Not the painting,” he said.
