Scrapheap Challenge

Believe it or not, this rusty iron bench - Topos IV by Eduardo Chillida - is worth £675,000 (800,000 of those euro thingies). The thief tried to sell it to a Spanish scrapyard dealer for £25 (30 euro thingies). The dealer called la policía, who recovered 35 works by Eduardo Chillida, Picasso and other tripe stolen from a warehouse in a Madrid suburb on 27 November. They found this haul in a lorry which had also been stolen from the warehouse.
