Image of A very heavy 'dialogue'

Picture: BG

Doubtless when it is 'installed', dramatically lit, and with a label beside it, this 'Treetrunk' by Jurgen Bey will be worth the £4-6,000 Christie's says it is. And doubtless too it will, as the catalogue entry states, 'offer a dialogue between culture and nature'.

But to me, as I was walked past Christie's this morning and saw it being lifted through the front door, it just looked like a large log with two chair backs stuck into it.
