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

Lol it's ivory wood. Nothing to do with animal ivory.


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.

Art is always subjective, but I always bring up Jackson Pollock's paintings when this sort of discussion comes up. That's one of the most expensive paintings in the world and quite clearly anyone who isn't a pretentious fuck can see that it's bullshit, but if people want to pay ridiculous amounts of money for stuff then they're free to do it.

I sincerely hope you're going to refund Blazedout419 for this mockery.

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.
I don't see why he should refund blazed his money. Blazed seems to be happy with his purchase and the fact that his art was machine made verses hand made does not seem to have affected what he would have been willing to pay.

Contrary to popular beliefs it was not machine made.

UPDATE 1: WoodCollector creates a hate thread in order to intimidate me into silence. He will post his evidence "soon": https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=931109.0

UPDATE 2: A carver with 40 years of experience calls bullshit: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=930649.msg10223017#msg10223017

UPDATE 3: Several pieces are found to be using stolen artwork: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=930649.msg10226824#msg10226824

UPDATE 4: IMPORTANT: I have received PMs indicating that WoodCollector is contacting his customers privately, and attempting to extort more money out of them by claiming that he will provide them with video proof once they pay their outstanding balance. I urge any customers who have not paid in full to not give this scammer any more of your money as he runs out the door.

UPDATE 5: Thread where WoodCollector attempts to recruit paid shills to push his phony wares: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=915488.0

UPDATE 6: Thread where our Master Carver is tired of making $10 million a year, and is interested in a much more lucrative career operating a dark market website selling marijuana paraphernalia: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=884265.msg9753499#msg9753499.

UPDATE 7: More stolen artwork: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=930649.msg10235300#msg10235300

UPDATE 8: WoodCollector resorts to using homophobic slurs to silence his detractors: http://i.imgur.com/DWQ8trs.png

Why is everyone who does not agree with you a shill?

People keep saying I am a shill even though I posted shipping info from US to UK..how does that one work?

I would post the transaction IDs for my 2 purchases but what's the point you will somehow say they are fake.

Wonder what you will say when you see his videos?

Yes, people keep saying you're a shill, even though you wrote down the names of several cities as well as a few times and dates in a post somewhere, way back when.

We're saying you're a shill because there's no other rational explanation for your continued support of an obvious, obvious scam.

Precisely so -- what's the point?

Does the shipping company list the contents of the package being shipped?

Does the TXID indicate what goods are being purchased?

No? Then, as you say... what's the point?

why would you varnish it?

looks like any piece of wood that has been stained and varnished

it it were a rare piece of wood with natural colouring it would be best to leave 'au naturel'

I can find no comparison online in google images or anything where this piece resembles watermelon ivory wood

I would actually pay to have a small sample drilled out of the back of this piece and sent to a lab for analysis.

Blazedout419 and I have a solid enough business relationship that I'm 100% willing to front the cost of determining whether he got ripped off. A two-minute google search shows up pieces of this very same wood for $900, not $11,000.

Lol really dude, perhaps I could take a picture of it outside Big Ben but no then you would say its a photoshop, nothing will please you.. So what will you say when you see a video of woodcutter doing detailed carving?

Probably accuse him of faking the video no doubt...I have et to see any customers of his complaining about their finished product - correct me of I am wrong?

+1.
This screamed out loud to me the first time I saw it and has done ever since.
It looks like some form of high gloss polyurethane varnish, totally inappropriate treatment for a rare piece of very hard wood (if that's what it is).

The touch of BTC in the cells is brilliant.

Yeah, a visual play on the BTC growing in the hive.
To have bees waxed the finished item would have been in keeping with this and allowed some patina to develop in the future, rather than gloss varnishing it to look like plastic.

Yes, I do know what I'm talking about. No, I am not someone else. Yes, I would like to see the carving video.
