The 1% make many beautiful things possible in the world which the rest of us could not afford. Yes we could celebrate the ballet and the opera and the symphony, none of which would likely thrive without the 1%, but today lets celebrate something a bit more material. I will never own anything like this. In fact, I would feel like a sucker if I paid the asking price for one. But I still enjoy the fact that they exist and I can admire their beauty.
