A picture of Marilyn Monroe sold at a Christies auction for almost $150,000, one of the last pictures taken of her before her death. An Andy Warhol portrait of Marilyn sold for $248,000 at that auction, and many other photos of her were also sold at fairly high prices.
Yes, a two and a quarter pound fungi truffle (not to be confused with a chocolate truffle) sold at an international auction for $200,000 to Hong Kong casino tycoon Stanley Ho. The auction was held simultaneously in London, Abu Dhabi, Macau and Rome.
