Berlusconi Soap sells for $18,000

Perhaps the oddest piece of work at Art Basel is a bar of soap, displayed on a square of black velvet, purportedly made from Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi’s fat, removed during liposuction.

Gianni Monti’s work called ‘Clean Hands’ sold in less than an hour for 15,000 euros ($18,000) to a private Swiss collector, according to Monti’s Galerie Nicola von Senger of Zurich.

This is both disgusting and crazy!!
Only a mad person would pay that much money for a bar of soap made out of human fat!
