Thomas Hertl's Playoff Beard: The fact that they are identical save for one detail (well two if you count the size) is the point the author is trying to make. "Is this art?" he asks. "Is this exact replica of a banal toy something that society will embrace as art, in 2014?" he asks. It is a daring move, and one that is appreciated by the avant-garde art community. It follows in the same movement as andy warhol's soup can. I personally wouldn't have paid more than 1 or 2 million though. 28 million is a still goodly sum, even in 2014. But since it is highly publicized now, that even farkers are debating about it, it means it is a successful work, engaging the viewer in an internal debate - and it will increase in value.
