My real point there was when does what started off purportedly to be art, is reduced to commodity and what is the relative value of it at that point. The first Navaho blanket cylinders were the real deal and there were around 45 of them. The commodity people resurrected them and devalued them at the same time but it meets payroll.
At one point Dale gave me a piece for giving him a ride to the airport in the middle of the night. I know he never saw it and I sold it to a woman who knew he never saw it, but it was indeed expensive. Is this sort of like Tiffany's modern as opposed to the real deal?
