The work of dutch artist Diddo, Ecce Animal is purported to be made from "street sourced" cocaine and gelatin. The artist also describes the laboratory process used to determine the purity of the product and create the work.

a relative large percentage of sugars, most probably Mannitol or Inositol."
Sounds like some pretty shitty coke. The dimensions are listed at 12x18x22cm: assuming $60 a gram, any guesses on street value?
