Apparently if you took all the gold in the world that has ever been mined and turned it into a cube it would have sides just over 20m long. Which isn’t really all that much when you think about it. Although it would be worth over $8.5 trillion. Which is rather a lot when you think about it. You’d certainly want to keep it somewhere safe.
Anyway, today’s piece has some precious gold leaf on it which makes it pretty fancy if you ask me. And it features a serene looking lady buddha who’s probably having some pretty profound thoughts about enlightenment and reincarnation. I, on the other hand, am saving my profound thoughts to see if I can decide what to have for lunch.
Bonus fact: the original write up for this piece had the words ‘shit weasel’ and ‘slovenly tadpole’ in it. Which makes it sound exciting but unfortunately they were the high points and the above is probably more appropriate….
