If You’re Like Me And Only Have $56 Million Spare Cash…

Then we’re both out of luck on this stocking stuffer

NEW YORK (AFP) – A tiny and extremely rare 5,000-year-old white limestone sculpture from ancient Mesopotamia sold for 57.2 million dollars in New York on Wednesday, smashing records for both sculpture and antiquities.
The carved Guennol Lioness, measuring just over eight centimeters (3 1/4 inches) tall, was described by Sotheby’s auction house as one of the last known masterworks from the dawn of civilization remaining in private hands.

Rats. Well, I guess it’s back to Best Buy for me then.

    It really does look like Snagglepuss, doesn’t it, Ken?
    I guess the copyright ran out after 4,000 years or so…

    That is beautiful. It only shows that there’s nothing new under the sun. That style looks like it could have been made last week.
