Artnet News reports that British artist Adrian Wilson recently sold the “world’s most expensive skateboard” on eBay for $20,000. The Supreme Mundi board features a detailed knockoff version of the Supreme logo on a wooden artist palette with wheels underneath.

“This isn’t just a usable novelty skateboard,” he said in a statement. “This is a commentary on the 500 year wide artistic and financial hypebubble we are in right now.”

According to Wilson, Supreme Mundi was inspired by the sale of Leonardo da Vinci’s Salvator Mundi in 2017 for $450 million followed by Sotheby’s recent sale of Supreme skateboard decks for $800,000. Wilson assures that the board is fully functional and was tested by New York-based skaters before it was displayed at the Con Artist Collective during the two-week eBay sale.
