    It isn't just quantity that decides the price of an item :)

    Make a thief, get one and sell it at the price you think is fair. Until that happens, its a seller's market and value is determined by them. Instead of saying it 'should' be lower... why don't you be proactive and work on lowering the price yourself? Hate to say it, but the price folks are willing to pay is sorta up to them and what -they- feel the item is worth to them.

    For example, I love "______ of exceptional quality" items. I've shelled out millions for a couple of the harder to find ones in my collection. Now is that what most people would think its worth? No, but I've paid it because it is worth it -to me-. Stop worrying about prices and let individual buyers decide. If its too much for you, just don't buy it.

    Disclaimer: I do not, nor have ever owned, a ruined painting. I haven't felt a desire to buy one because it hasn't fit in with my house decor.

    Escaflowne is correct, there are a number of other factors involved in the price of an item. For this particular situation there are two very prominent factors....Availability and Desirability or Supply & Demand....While this particular item may spawn on each shard roughly 3 or so times a year it is an item that many people want and often keep, so it is not seen on the open market or nearly as easy to find as say a skinned dear.

    Some stealther stole my skinned deers the other day! I set up a butcher stall at an RP market and wanted to make my stall look awesome, so i spent 1m on 3 skinned deers and put them on display at my stall. 2 mins after i had put them down some stealther stole them and ran off lol. So i guess there is still a demand out there for them :p
