The Art Guys
Bronze cremation urns, contract, artists' ashes (subject to cremation)
In 2009, The Art Guys created bronze urns in the forms of their heads, using 3-D scanning. Forever Yours is an artwork in which the buyer receives the urns, a signed contract, and the cremated ashes of both Michael Galbreth and Jack Massing (subject to their demise). In 2019, Michael passed away. His ashes have been placed in his urn. Jack is still among the living, but eventually he'll be placed in his urn too.
Sales price: $1,000,000
