Check out Daniel Douke he did a full size canvas piece of plywood with tire tracks that was so real I had to look at it twice close up to finally realize it was a piece of art.

Not quite unanimous....

The Willamette Meteorite called and would appreciate having its ears, nose, and double-chin returned immediately. It is considering a massive lawsuit, which will shower your artist, 4 video monitors and the Hammer Cafe in 32,000 pounds of carbon paper.

In what he surely considers to be a very ironic and clever gesture, the future owner will offer $1,499.99 for it.

I seriously doubt it would ever sell for $100 million (and I wouldn't pay $10 for it) but exorbitant price tags are not exclusive to modern art. Art of any epoch at those price levels is often a pure investment game, as with any other commodity, as much as it is about real "understanding" or passion. Get enough people involved in the game and it becomes an escalating spiral.

An excellent and enetertaining book on the art market is "Duveen", by S. N. Behrman, which recounts the story of the legenday dealer Joseph Duveen, who provided works to Frick, Hearst, Mellon, Rockefeller, etc. Very interesting stuff.
