There’s a story, a modern-day parable, about a man who had a large art collection. This man had a son who went off to war and unfortunately perished overseas.
The father of this young soldier cherished the military portrait of his son above all his other possessions. When the man died, the photography of his son in his uniform came up first at auction. The bidding declined as no one saw the value in this single photograph when held up against priceless works of art…$100…$50…no takers….$20, $10…silence.
