McDonald's gherkin stuck to ceiling selling for over €6,000 as 'sculpture'

McDonald's gherkin stuck to ceiling selling for over €6,000 as 'sculpture'

I think we've seen it all now, eh?

An Australian artist is selling his peculiar "sculpture" for over €6,000!

The artist's work is a slice of a gherkin from an item on the fast food giant McDonald’s menu.

The essential part of the McDonald's burger was thrown onto the ceiling where it appears to be holding on for its life by some leftover burger sauce.

The Aussie, Matthew Griffin, had his "sculpture" - named "Pickle" - on display at an exhibition in New Zealand over the weekend, where it was priced at 10,000 New Zealand dollars!

According to our calculations, that works out at €6,147.95 with a Big Mac on its own costing you just €4.90! That's a fair jump which has left people baffled at the price of the artwork.

However, funny is the key to making it work! According to The Guardian, Ryan Moore, the director of Fine Arts, Sydney, which represents the Aussie said that a funny approach "to the work is not invalid – it’s okay because it is funny.”

Would you be willing to spend over six grand on a pickle?
