Oh my god, that's so beautiful!

Thanks john, i appreciate the kind words. I have been Commissioned by a few members on the forum to create a few more custom works, None quite as expensive as this one but still out of super exotic and rare hardwood's so there will be a few beautiful Bitcoin pieces floating around over the next few months. Some of them inherently strange including a Bitcoin Bong and a Bitcoin Dildo, but all will be beautiful works of art.

I can't even imagine the attention you need to give to hand carving such a large and expensive piece of hardwood with that kind of precision.

I am very excited to get this piece. I have not decided on how to keep it though..in a fancy display case or just hang it on the wall? I guess I will decide once it arrives!

What is the dimension/size of that thing?

Me either, thats why i dont think about it or i would be terrified. Last year i messed up a $20,000 piece of Kauri that was carbon dated 52,000 years old because i was over thinking it.

I think in a shadow box with glass on front. I have a couple of signed guitars framed this way on my walls. I think it would look great....and protect your investment. I had a picture frame shop custom make mine, price wasn't that bad.

Put it in a display case... It will keep the wood protected...n u can probably put it anywhere u like... even in the bathroom..lol..!! I think the case would easily be a better option than hanging it on the wall.!

Blazedout bought it for $14,000?

Well it is considered Royal Wood
Guess he was pimping it out pretending to be royalty (but not put to death xd)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pink_Ivory
Pink Ivory was the royal tree of the Zulu People and only members of the royal family were allowed to possess it until the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879. Before the Anglo-Zulu War, the Zulu king (and prior to 1818, Zulu chiefs) would possess a pink ivory knob kerry, a stick with one end a knob, and wear jewelry that were also made from pink ivory. According to rumor, non-royals who possessed the wood would summarily be put to death. After Zululand fell to the British and was separated into 13 separate "kinglets" 1883, all vying to retake control of what was once theirs precedent to the onset of apartheid, the pink ivory wood became much less important a sign of control than genuine control could be.


So unless royal and you posses this wood you get cursed?

No if you read it carefully you find out they were killed for possessing this wood prior to the Anglo-Zulu war. The only people allowed to possess it were those of the royal family.

I just want to make sure i understand what your saying so please clarify. Are you saying that if you have enough money to buy something nice, that you should turn down an opportunity to make more money when it arises? So if i could afford to buy a $2,000 bottle of champagne but an opportunity came along  where i could make say $100 for doing next to nothing and it only takes me 10 minutes to do that i should say no because i can afford good champagne now and again?

That's not sarcasm or trolling just to be clear, i have never seen someone make such a statement and i am trying to better understand and enlighten myself. I dont know very many wealthy people who think with that logic and i would like to know where that thought process comes from.

Thanks  Wink

You don't reach a position to spend $14k on something by declining easy ways of making money. He would post on the forums anyway, so why not get paid.
