Pole or Art?

The other day as I was walking down the street in Chelsea, I passed this post, as I have so many times without giving it a second glance.  As fate would have it, I took a look at the placard in the center and realized that it was “designed” by Paul Richard.  It’s from 2009, so this is hardly breaking news, but it was new to me and my job as a blogger is to share the latest goodness with you.  This is far more interesting than slagging off Sandra Bullock, according2g.

See how much this mixed media piece by Paul Richard retails for after the jump.

Yours for $350,000!

Can I put this on layaway?  Brilliant stuff!
