Coons Plagiarism?

The Centre Pompidou in Paris has withdrawn this porcelain sculpture from its retrospective of the works of Jeff Koons, following an accusation of plagiarism by Franck Davidovici, who created a similar image for an advertisement for French clothing brand Naf-Naf. Koons' sculpture Fait d'Hiver (1 of 4) has a pig with a barrel under its neck, like a Saint Bernard rescue dog, and the bust of a girl as though caught in an avalanche. Koons' sculpture fetched $3.7 million at a Christie's New York auction in 2007 (CLICK).
