For Use by Lady Macbeth, Perhaps

I missed this item when it first appeared on the BBC and have only just now spotted it thanks to The Progressive magazine.

"An art work purportedly made from excess fat from Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has been sold for $18,000 (£9,862).

Switzerland-based artist Gianni Motti claims to have bought the fat from a clinic where the leader had a liposuction operation performed.

He moulded it into a bar of soap which he named Mani Pulite (Clean Hands)."

Excess fat? He's ALL excess fat!
