A New Zealand man is auctioning off the giant boulder which destroyed his home in the Christchurch earthquake.
Phil Johnson has named the boulder Rocky and it has become an unofficial symbol of the quake, reports the media.
Rocky has his own page on Facebook and bidding for the 30 tonne rock has reached more than £3,600.
Phil Johnson is auctioning off the giant rock which destroyed his hillside home and remains firmly embedded in the ruins, reports the media.
Rocky, which is still embedded in the ruins of Mr Johnson's hillside home, has more than 2,000 fans on Facebook and the auction listing has notched up more than a quarter of a million hits.
"For sale, one owner, 25-30 tonne landscape feature (answers to the name Rocky)," reads the listing on the www.trademe.co.nz website.
"He is in pristine condition (just a little bit of concrete dust). Suitable for garden feature, or as in our case, a magnificent addition to your living area... Rocky will enhance your 'indoor outdoor' flow considerably."
Mr Johnson says all proceeds from the sale will go to the relief fund to help those affected by the earthquake.
The auction had received 58 bids at the time of writing and hundreds of enquiries and comments.
"Look, I'm in the market for such a rock, but I'm concerned about how house-trained your one is. Clearly it's been digging holes in your back yard. Has it had recent obedience training?" asked one.
