It depends on how much money. Because if something happens with this pinecone, I don't want it all going to waste on medical bills. And what if it scratched me, I had internal bleeding, and I died? Screw art, I'd be dead!
And only if the pinecone was chocolate covered and I could use a knife on it. Also, it would have to have been properly handled and cleaned before hand.
I have a friend from Moldova, and tell you right now, his grandma can cook a mean pinecone. The secret is boiling it to make it nice and soft to extract the seeds, then mixing it with a mixture of olive oil, black pepper, sea salt, basil, and just a pinch of thyme. Lather the ingredients together, coat the pinecone (now soft and mooshy from the boiling) with a coat of the oil mixture, and bake at 450 degrees for twenty minutes (to make it nice and crispy).
Wabam. You can now eat a pinecone. And it's awesome.
