    I thought it was kind of ugly myself. But I also noticed that it was made from "healing" gems. Maybe the person who bought it doesn't have the best of health and thought it would help. :shuffle:

    A $2.00 drugstore enema would probably make him feel much better than sitting in a 1.74 mil bathtub.

    Cleaning solution derived from gold dust and ground diamonds.

    It must be prettier in person; but if I were the maid I wouldn't go anywhere near it with Soft Scrub and a brush.

    Depends on what his health problem is. ;)

    I just thought that part made it more interesting than having paid a lot for a bathtub. People will do all sorts of crazy things to restore their health and pay a lot more too.

    :rofl:

    Myself, I would not pay a $100,000 bill over 4.1 million for that.

    Do you have an address where I can submit some of my work? I only charge $95,000 for my photos, clearly a steal!

    I firmly believe that people should be able to spend their money however they choose (as long at is legal).

    Having said that................REALLY? There is a point at which it is just silly. A point at which it doesn't get better, it just gets stupid. How do you even appreciate that, and why would you. It is a bath! It is a toilet! Come on!

    I wouldn't hang that photo in my house if they gave it to me for free.

    Yes, seriously.

    The composition is perfect.

    The austere, almost desolate landscape is haunting (you'd never believe it was Rhein).

    When I look at it, I feel like it's drawing me in (which says as much about my need for medication as the photograph, I know :p).

    Plus everything that was quoted in the article.

    Stunning, stunning, stunning.

    I seriously like it too. Love the deceptively simple lines and the contrasting textures of the water, grass and sky. Lovely.

    I'd put it on my wall- but I wouldn't pay more than $500 for it though. But then my art budget doesn't run into the millions. ;)
