I am posting this here because so many people "judge" the value of art based on the materials of which art works are made, which of course is bunkum.

Not to say that art can't be made from expensive materials also.

Case in point Damian Hirst's Skull, encrusted with diamonds, which is collectively owned by a group of investors, including Hirst.
