Treasures of eBay is a daily feature where we wade through the mountains of bollocks on eBay to bring you an auction we think is worth a second look.

Today’s treasure is a Cubist Painting of Soccer Players, with an opening price of $1,000,000.00 and an auction ending on July 16, 2011 at 12:41:47 PDT

Art is subjective. What a piece is worth depends on a number of things: cultural context, technical ability, fame of the artist. It’s pretty fair to say, however, that nobody values artist Tommervik’s work quite as highly as he does.

The artist is asking the princely sum of ONE MILLION DOLLARS (plus $9.99 shipping) for his cubist work TOMMERVIK WORLD CUP SOCCER PLAYER CUBISM PAINTING. That’s slightly out of the price range of a KCKRS writer. And we’re fairly sure that there’s a handball being committed in the painting, too.

A quick perusal of Tommervik’s website reveals he paints more than just sports. You can also buy paintings themed around Star Wars, Michael Jackson, and Pewee Herman. Seriously.
