This mirror ball in transparant plastic bag was shown in “Een goed in de weg staande tafel” curated by Jack Jaeger in Galerie van Gelder in 2001. A catalogue was issued.
In spite of its description being an edition this multiple as shown above is impossible to find. It is known that the original version shown in the Venice Biennale in 1966 was produced in an edition of 1500, but one may wonder what has happened with the other 1499 copies of this smaller version apparently put in plastic mini bag and tag saying: YAYOI KUSAMA One of the 1500 mirror balls of Narcissus Garden 1966-1999.
