    I'd pay about $200 for it. Maybe if I took a couple more art appreciation classes, I'd appreciate it more.
    An art history course might make it more meaningful. $100 million is pretty steep when you can appreciate an image instead, though.

    A third option presents itself?

    Olemn slammed his hammer and from the sparks on the metal of his anvil came the spheres of the heavens.

    Sayrah blew life into the spheres and they moved. From her wheel she weaved the names of people in to mystery.

    wow...a million artists making art just as good can't sell a piece for 1,000 and this hunk of junk sells for more than a small country. No wonder no one believes free markets actually exist.

    Hey. I just saw that at the Nelson Atkins museum a few months ago. It's actually quite striking in person, so much gets lost when something is photographed. This includes many of the great paintings, I never really understood until I saw the brush strokes.

    Well, this artist's work is particularly iconic for its implied social commentary and influence on the art world. Taste is definitely partly arbitrary, but this line of pieces was en pointe for the time and expressed a lot of powerful post-WWII (if I remember correctly) feelings of disillusionment and isolation.

    well that explains it. Sorry. Didn't know the history behind it. Still think it's worth 100 million though?

    Haha you're fine. I wouldn't have interjected if it wasn't one of like 50 pieces I studied.

    I wouldn't pay a cent for it, but I'm not particularly invested in my surroundings.

    Every time I bathe the cat, I have to wear PPE.

    Why on earth would you bathe a cat?


    Mine came with a pre-installed self-cleaning function (and clean each other as well). Their fur never smells bad, they hardly smell of anything at all. Then again, they' re house cats.
