This isn't just any potato, it's a potato photographed by Kevin Abosch. This piece, according to his website, is called Potato #345. One of only three prints of this exclusive work of art has just been sold to an unnamed businessman for €1 Million. According to Abosch, as he told the Sunday Times, the transaction started like this:
“We had two glasses of wine and he said, ‘I really like that’. Two more glasses of wine and he said: ‘I really want that.’
Abosch is known for stunning portraits of famous people, like Malala Yousafzai, and now also potatoes.
