Sounds to me like it was worth 46 pounds.

swahnhennessy: You can find the same thing at any nursery or big-box garden section for $65. Then, if you want, you can lie and say it was made by some guy no one's ever heard of. You can save hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Ignorance is nothing to be proud of.

Is this a thread where we argue that functional value should be the same as artistic value, and that if we can't appreciate certain qualities of an object, those qualities have no value?

Agreed, when I saw this yesterday...I just thought, utter subhuman scum...Now to read that they did a little better on their second acquisition...getting 186 quid for £100,000 worth of plinth, makes my piss fizz even more.

Why don't people understand the beauty and value of things?

Hmm. I have this sculpture that's worth $800K and small enough to be carried away. I know, I just leave it outside, more or less unsecured where anyone can just take it!
