Kim Kardashian Gets $1.3 Million Bag From Kanye West for Christmas

Kim Kardashian Gets $1.3 Million Bag From Kanye West for Christmas

The woman who has everything, Kim Kardashian, got a truly unique Christmas gift she didn’t have from her fiance, Kanye West — a priceless hand-painted Hermes Birkin bag with surrealistic nude figures on it. The brilliant artist George Condo painted the scene depicted on Kim’s new bag.

The painting on the bag depicts three naked women and a man with a green monster mask on (or, possibly a green-headed monster with a man’s body).  One of the women is holding a glass of red wine. The menage a trois plus one looks as if they have a full night ahead of them.

If anyone views the painting as being work of pornography, according to artist George Condo, it’s not the painting’s fault. It’s no more pornographic in appearance than many classical works of art. Rather, if a person’s imagination goes wild, and reads things into a work of art, “What’s happening in their minds should be banned,” not the work of art, itself.

On Thursday, December 26, Kim Kardashian showed off her awesome new  bag on Instagram. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star captioned her photo with the hastags #OneofOne #Hermes Birkin #ChristmasPresentFromYeezy #HandPaintedGeorgeCondo

Kim Kardashian took her very expensive bag with her on a shopping trip in Woodland Hills, California, with Kanye West, 36. She wore an all-white outfit.

Just how expensive is the Hermes Birkin bag Kim Kardashian got for Christmas?

In case you’re wondering, a “regular” Hermes Birkin bag will set you back $16,000. One which includes a hand-painted work of art by George Condo, on the other hand, sells for an arm and a leg and $1.3 million.

Kanye West has utilized George Condo’s talents before. He commissioned him to do five covers for his 2010 album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.  One of the covers, which shows West on a blue couch with an armless female naked Sphinx on top of him, was banned from being sold at iTunes and Walmart.

West wanted to make sure that the Christmas gift he bought for Kim Kardashian was one-of-a-kind, according to a source close to the artist who is quoted by (you can read the article by clicking on the second source, below). He “wanted Kim to have everything original.”

The bag that rapper Kanye West gave to his fiance, reality star Kim Kardashian, is definitely one-of-a-kind. Some people who have viewed it have considered it to be stunning and beautiful, while others have been stunned by how ugly they think that it looks.

Art, and beauty, are truly in the eye of the beholder. What do you think of the bag that West got for Kim Kardashian for Christmas? Do you think it’s a beautiful work of art, or that it’s a monstrosity, or perhaps somewhere in-between these two extremes? Please leave your comments below!

    George Condo is rolling on the floor laughing with his bank statements while reading tweets by Kanye and Kim.

    Ummm, here’s a thought, stop spending your money on ugly expensive bags and give to a charity. It’s absolutely disgusting to spend money like that even if you are Kayne and Kim Kardashian. He is in debt for millions I wonder why!! Stupid!! And you can not fix that!!

    I would never accept such a gift, knowing the suffering that is going on in this world to bare such a gift would be an insult to humanity my God.

    Tell Kim to take it back and give the money to her in depth husband

    Now if it was larger on the inside then on the outside it might be worth $1.3 million. Other than that no wonder Kanye is in debt.

    Really , I would rather read about the humanity of humans, who give back to others with no sense of ” Look what I got “. There ‘s no reward for gloating. I really feel sorry for this family. They will pay a high price when the dominos start falling down. I see articles every day about this family, why can’t they take a “hiatus” from the public. Too much info about your life is bad. Try being humble for once with your blessings.
