Since the first was such a hit here is other piece Friend and Griffin put together.  Discuss.

Inspired by ''Robocop'' ?

Discuss? Auto spell mistake ? I think you mean to say ' disgusting'

j-pax

i cannot say it is disgusting.... some art realy disgusts me ... and it probably is what the maker intended....

a association with the work above.... it makes me tink about yuppies in the eighties.... this should fit in a interieur of that time.... i think it was cool that you pay much money for some thing easy to make... like the yuppies made easy money themself....  i think of the movie "wallstreet"

I suppose some might call this chess set art. The pricetag is over £5million.

j-pax

i could not find real pictures on google... i think the drawings/story of the jewel royale chess set is  promotion of the thriller/book metioned in the article

Maybe they won't make any until they get a down payment and no one has offered?

RomyGer

See www.marblesthebrainstore.com for this set, price 250 dollar !

i think that wobble chess  would be annoying after 5min and that 5million $ chess-set looks like pure photoshop/3d programm
