Winners at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards won’t just get a trophy and recognition, they’ll pick up a piece of pop art history. Legendary artist KAWS, best known for his “Companion” pieces, was commissioned to apply a new look to MTV’s well-known VMA Moonman award. Everything about the piece is easily recognizable as a KAWS original as it gets the “X”-ed out eyes, crossbones, a customary finger reduction and a pair of shorts.

The 2013 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, Aug. 25, live from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
