A hole in Picasso’s Dream

In a $139 million dollar mistake, Steve Wynn put his elbow through the center of Picasso’s “Dream” painting.

Wynn had been set to sell the painting and was showing it to some people when he accidentally hit it with his elbow and put a small hole in the center. Obviously the sale was cancelled and Wynn was quoted as saying…..

“Smack in the middle … was a black hole the size of a silver dollar. ‘Oh s—,’ he said. ‘Look what I’ve done. Thank goodness it was me.'”

Wynn is best known for developing The Mirage and Bellagio resorts in Las Vegas.
