    They can't be serious.

    "My Bed," auctioned for the first time, was sold by the Saatchi Gallery Collection.

    Fifteen years ago, the startlingly human elements of the work, which includes discarded condoms and stained sheets, caused a sensation, raising questions about what was and was not art.
    YUCK~! Just more proof that some people have more dollars than cents.

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.

    I can't see the condoms. She is certainly tidy with her mess.
