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

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!

UKcrypto, i couldn't have said it better myself. thanks buddy

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.

We are here on a public forum to express our opinions, my opinion is that it's a worthless piece of shit. How is it indicative of my intelligence or entitles you to condescend and generally be an unpleasant fart I shall never know.

Who cares if it's the 3rd rarest sea shell with the 3rd rarest blue spot, it's still a useless crap.


Ahh, yes, we can see hints of the painters rough childhood at the bottom left strokes, the colors are clearly indicitive of his mixed sexual orientation and his sexual urges towards his mother, dem plebeians could never comprehend the sophistication! let me swirl my wine in my glass some more.
Meanwhile us normal people who aren't braindead pretentious faggot stoners are buying guns, cars and actual pieces of art.

You shouldn't go with the accusation till it is proven right.

Even still, the wood itself cost 90%

The high cost associated with this piece is the wood, yes, I appreciate that, however it was sold in bad taste and under false pretense.

This is a beautiful art piece but is it made from animal ivory? If so people need to realise that these animals are going extinct because of animal killings

Elephants were going extinct because of government regulations.  Now that private citizens are allowed to own elephants, breed them and sell them for their skin and ivory, the elephant populations are booming.  

The same would probably apply to the material that AnimalPartsCollector used to carve this huge B out of a single tusk.

But I appreciate you representing the animal rights culture and reminding us what it's all about.

The one posted in the scam accusation was made from purpleheart. You know what they say, "every great man is going to have a few detractors" it was only a matter of time before someone got jealous enough and bored enough to start making accusations. Someone said something a month ago or so, but after posting pictures and whatnot he knew i was for real. This new guy just has too much time on his hands.

Correct, More info can be found here

Commissioned by: Blazedout419
Material: Premiere grade quilted Watermelon Ivory (A rare form of Pink Ivory)
Price: $14,000 usd

The Hive is a representation of the hive mind that drives Bitcoin and its great communities and is hand carved into one of the the most expensive and rare woods on the planet. Pink Ivory wood is listed on the top 10 most expensive woods in the world and Watermelon Ivory is an ultra rare form of Pink Ivory which is no longer listed or classified as it only grows naturally and 99.99% of the time only in trees exceeding 500 years of age. Pink Ivory trees are protected and thus only allowed to be harvest if they are commercially grown directly for harvest which eliminates access to Watermelon Ivory all together unless the tree was fell prior to its listing on the protected list.

A special thanks to Blazedout419 as without his commissioning me to create this great piece this luxurious and beautiful wood would have probably been turned into some rich snobs cigar box or his wife's jewelry box.

So you started with a very expensive piece of wood, and took a dump all over it. It's especially cute that Blazedout419 thinks bitcoin is driven by a "hive mind."

Marriage is a permanent bond (or should be) between a man and a woman. Scripture reveals a man has the freedom to have this marriage bond with more than one woman, if he so desires. But, anything beyond this is a perversion. -- Darwin Fish
