The estimate was only 25,000 - 35,000 Euro, but something got out of hand:
OK, I get it. Jean Giroud is better known under the name Moebius. He was a genius. Alejandro Jodorowsky is no nobody either. And Dune is just popular right now. I was outbid by a factor of over 65… sigh.
The expert that estimated the sale value must have been a bit surprised too.
Now who is the billionaire that has a soft spot for Dune and Jodorowsky and Moebius? And who was the other bidder who drove him to such an excess?
