"FOOL'S GOLD" lotto ticket

"FOOL'S GOLD" lotto ticket


16” x 20” x 1.75"
Marble, smalti (glass) & gold

About 30 lbs.


(Includes a chisel and hammer!)

Own the world’s largest, heaviest and most expensive lottery ticket! The art functions just like a real one. "FOOL'S GOLD" features 5 ‘chisel-off’ concrete boxes. The buyer can deface the artwork (or not) and chisel out one of the boxes to reveal a color. Depending on what color is exposed the buyer can get the piece for free, a discount or nothing at all!

Green = FREE

Blue = $500 off

Red = Nothing

Fun right? I have skin in the game. The purchaser has skin in the game. Does the new owner let the piece be and wonder “what if?” Or chisel away at it in hopes of saving some money or even getting the artwork for free? Do I end up giving away “FOOL'S GOLD” with a correct guess and regret this stupid idea?

The owner will have one week after receiving the artwork to chisel out a square.


Need more pix? Let me know and I can send you more or just stop by the studio for look.

Art can be a luxury so payment plans are always an option.
