Have you ever wanted to own a piece of the moon? Now might be your chance, if you have a million bucks lying around. Next month Sotheby’s in New York will auction off some of the only moon rocks that can be legally owned by private individuals.
If you’ve always had your heart set on a TRON Lightcycle — a working one, not a matchbox toy — you’d better start saving. The going rate (as much as there is a going rate for one-off movie-replica collectibles) is $US77,000.
Last year saw not one but two record-breaking art sales — Cindy Sherman’s Untitled #96 ($US3.89 million) and Andreas Gursky’s Rhein II ($US4.3 million). Both paltry sums given the amount that Sotheby’s just sold Edvard Munch’s masterpiece for.
