It will arrive to me tomorrow! I will take some good pictures and decide how it will be displayed.
I don't understand how you have 14k $ to spend in a piece and you participate in a signature campaign to earn  some  bucks

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.

Thanks MadZ, i thought there was something i was missing that was lost in context or something when i read that but now i know i am not the only one who understood it that way. Much appreciated for not making me feel alone in interpreting that. +1 good sir

Pictured with "The Hive" is the BTC that is from pretty much every Casascius picture/video. The Orange BTC (Signed by Casascius) is what I told WoodCollector to base this on for size. I was going to hang The Hive next to it, but it would just make Mike's look bad lol.

The level of detail is just amazing!

This was a commissioned piece? How much profit did the artist make? What was the cost of the wood to begin with?

The wood was not cheap due to it being extremely rare...plus the hours to hand carve. The price sounds really high, but this is an art piece, so I did not expect to land it for $100.00. If I had gone with a more common wood the price would have been dramatically lower.

I would display these side by side.  Mike's was clearly the inspiration, so the two pieces together tell a more complete story, one that is still unfolding.

Just my two bits.

It's a $14,000 Bitcoin.  One day you'll call that cheap.

It's not even a satoshi, it's a worthless piece of wood, carve it up into a dildo and shove it up your wifes ass.

Make up your mind.  Is it worthless or can it be used as a valuable marital aid?

It's valuable martial aid only if used as unintended by the author, one up the pooper the other up the vagaroo. I will gladly take the credit for this invention and would like to claim my 14k dead 'murican presidents now.

Not to be a downer but am I the only one who thinks this is complete crap? Some craved painted piece of wood for 14 fucking grant? Sounds like some dumb crap to me

Looks like we found a buttcoiner  Wink

It may help if you do a little reading first.

The wood is not painted, it is naturally watermelon red.
The wood is 3rd on the top most rarest wood on the planet thus VERY expensive.
The wood has the rare, watermelon deformity making it the rarest of the pink ivory species thus making in even more insanely expensive.
The wood by itself is 90% of the cost of the piece

and

Someone, ME, I, decided that such a rare and luxurious piece of wood should be made into something, an art piece, that represents bitcoin in its entirety.

Your not being a downer, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Not everyone is sophisticated enough to understand and appreciate fine art. Some people would rather blow their money on video games until their brain was fried, others have the intelligence to appreciate the finer things in life.  

It is nothing more than an exercise in futility to try and make someone with less than average intelligence understand things that are common sense to educated and sophisticated people.

It's a $14,000 Bitcoin.  One day you'll call that cheap.

It's not even a satoshi, it's a worthless piece of wood, carve it up into a dildo and shove it up your wifes ass.

Its been done

TWICE

Your wife was very pleased.

You sound pretty ignorant - its a very rare wood, its been carved by a very talented guy. You need to educate yourself my friend. Some people pay millions for 'painted bits of wood' - seriously man, get a life!
