That is beautiful. If it took him 10 years to complete I'm sure it's way out of my league. It sure would like nice in my office.

Hmm. Let's see. $20k divided by an estimated 10k hours? So the guy is selling his labor for $2 an hour? You're a moron.


BEAUTIFUL piece of art though. Would love to see it in person.

The Pensacola News Urinal had an article about it a week or so ago.

The artist was asking $ 25,000.00

I am certain this guy could get WAY more than that from a private collector. He should probably look into some of the bigger art auctions.Best of luck to this guy.
