The couple that I have seen are spectacular - not for everyone's taste - but really intriguing and impressive.

You certainly cannot get much of an appreciation of his work from small, internet images.

I'd suggest seeing some of his work, before you pass judgment.

It could be the very definition of spectacular and still not make sense to me at that price. I understand what you're saying but I think it's tangential to a discussion of the nature of monetary valuation.
