Conspicuous Consumption by John Slaby

Minimum Bid: $250

Current Bid: $300
Conspicuous Consumption came about as I was learning how to use gold leaf for Icon for Eros. Someone mentioned that there are foods in which actual gold leaf is consumed and I thought that was the perfect, literal manifestation of conspicuous consumption. So here I have fruits and cakes covered in gold leaf. The roses, silver plates, and currency add to the ostentatious atmosphere.
