OVER $6 THOUSAND FOR THIS?

an artwork of a pickle slice from a McDonald's burger stuck to a ceiling is on exhibition in New Zealand and selling for $6,200

An Australian artist’s latest masterpiece is a McDonald’s pickle
stuck to a ceiling — and he wants $6,200 for it.

The gallery director said “The work, simply titled "Pickle," gets
at the question of how people attribute value and meaning to
things”. 

Whoever buys the art will get instructions on how to recreate it
for themselves.

ACIENT ROMAN BUST FOUND AT GOODWILL

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A marble bust that a Texas woman bought
for about $35 from a Goodwill store is temporarily on display at a
San Antonio museum after experts determined it was a centuries-
old sculpture missing from Germany since World War II.

The bust, which art collector Laura Young found at Goodwill in
2018, once belonged in the collection of King Ludwig I of Bavaria, according to the San Antonio Museum of Art, which is temporarily displaying the piece until it is returned to Germany next year.

The ancient Roman bust dates to the first century B.C. or first
century A.D. and historians believe it may depict a son of Pompey
the Great, who was defeated in a civil war by Julius Caesar.

CAVE ART DISCOVERED ON THIS DAY IN 1940

Near Montignac, France, a collection of prehistoric cave paintings
were discovered by four teenagers who stumbled upon the ancient artwork after following their dog down a narrow entrance into a
cavern. The 15,000- to 17,000-year-old paintings, consisting mostly
of animal representations, are among the finest examples of art
from the
Upper Paleolithic period.
