Rare original art!

[Edit: This is my girlfriend making an April Fool out of me... "Lirpa Loof" ...]

Have you ever dreamt about walking in to an antique store just to find a stack of original art among the old lamps, tables and used tin soliders? And the artwork then turns ot to be comic strip art from 1990? And by an artist you happen to like and never seen original art by before?
That happened to me two days ago. Not in a dream but for real. :)
The artist is Lirpa Loof, and is very famous here in Sweden, known for her very detailed and advanced drawings.
This beautiful piece was published in one of Swedens biggest newspaper back in the early 90's, and is estimated to be worth up to over 13.000 US-dollars(!)

Hey, by the way, you could check out the stuff of Jan Lööf, famous Swedish illustrator/cartoonist with almost the same surname...
