Van Gogh's ear to be sold at auction

"AN EAR, believed to be the one severed by artist Vincent Van Gogh in a fit of demented self-mutilation, has been discovered in a glass jar in the attic of a farmhouse in Provence and is to be offered at auction in New York in January. It is expected to realise between $2-3 million."

"Experts believe that the ear (shown above left) could provide sufficient DNA to recreate the troubled genius whose vibrant canvases are now blue-chip commodities on the international art market. "

Great art satire! Get your bid on...
