(Scroll down for video) A man of the Netherlands, who turned his amputated leg into a lamp, put it up for sale on ebay, for $130,000.

Leo Bolten said that ebay canceled the sale because they do not allow the sale of body parts.

His story began earlier this year, after his right leg had to be amputated. He refused to give up his leg, and instead, he enlisted several professionals to turn it into a lamp.

Bonten decided to sell his lamp leg because he needed money to pay for his mounting medical bills.

Willem Schaperkotter, who worked for two weeks to turn the leg into a lamp, said: “I’m surprised. He wanted his leg to become a lamp because he could not say goodbye. I thought that he would maybe want to sell the lamp in a few years. I did not expect this to happen so soon.”
