I must congratulate both bidders at the end - it was like a heavy weight 12 rounder slogging it out for 90 minutes. Quite enthralling.

This piece deserves to be on the Front Cover of Todays Sunday Times 'The Rich List'

Minted - well done MRE

A stairway to heaven is simply a metaphor, a way for us to reach heaven from our earthly abode.

The same idea has a well known biblical precept: the “stairway” could be a reference to Jacob’s Ladder, where Jacob has a dream of angels climbing up a ladder and ascending to heaven.

Genesis 28:12: And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.



It’s no coincidence that she’s “buying” the stairway; this is a statement on materialism and thinking you can buy your way to salvation (which was an actual practice at one time, called “Indulgence”) or happiness. Heaven, in this case, could be a metaphor for ultimate happiness. She’s purchasing everything she wants, having it all. On her way to owning everything, material she could be approaching a material Heaven.

This is a seminal building at the Apex of Manhattan - and it appears that MRE wisely chose a heavenly theme - to go along with the cover - NFT .... well done MRE
