NES Wooden Sculpture: Video Game Console as Art

by Lambert Varias

We’ve featured Nintendo systems with wooden components before, but this NES is entirely made out of wood, with the exception of the strings used for the cables:

It seems that the console – along with a wooden TV – was made for an exhibit. The sculpture is said to be so well made, “it appears to be a functional Nintendo at first glance.” I’m inclined to disagree since, well, it looks like a wooden sculpture at first glance.

It was put up for sale on eBay, but no one seemed interested in it. On the other hand, someone paid $50,000 for a real NES. Not a collector’s edition or rare unit, just a plain, working, non-wooden one.
