Italian Artist Salvatore Garau just sold an invisible sculpture for $18,000. I wasn’t aware of the market for invisible objects, but I’ve decided to sell an Airbus A350-1000 for only $20 Million, a huge discount off the $366.5 million list price. Do be warned, however, that the airplane is invisible.
For Sale: Invisible Airbus A350-1000
Garau explains that his latest sculpture, called Io Sono (I am), really exists “but just not in material form, and is actually more like a vacuum.”
“The vacuum is nothing more than a space full of energy, and even if we empty it and there is nothing left, according to the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, that ‘nothing’ has a weight. Therefore, it has energy that is condensed and transformed into particles, that is, into us.”
He likens it to “shaping a god we have not seen.” The sculpture is 5 x 5 feet and includes a certificate of authenticity.

Based upon Garau’s inspiration, I have decided to sell an invisible A350-100. Note, the Airbus A350-1000 includes:
Again, however, note that you’ll have to imagine those specs because this particular A350 exists in a vacuum. But according to the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, it still has weight and will always be a weight upon you, dear purchaser.
Tell you what: if you buy this aircraft (no invisible money accepted), I’ll fly you and a guest out to California in first class and host a formal pick-up ceremony.
I have a shrink-ray device that I will use to shrink the A350 into an invisible pocket-sized trinket which you can then return to your own aircraft hangar before restoring it to its real size.

Finally, note that 50% of the purchase price will go to a worthy charity and is tax deductible.
Thanks for your interest! Let me know if you have any questions. The aircraft is pictured above.
