Can't steal the picture, but here's the link:

I managed to capture the catalogue picture: df56d9f7a773203adeeacd601102d2d7.jpg
This may be my favorite one to date.

It went for HKD 611,146,250. That's 78,789,909.59 in American money. Quite a bit above the estimate! Oops, that's the total for the sale. There's a reason I am not in business. A bargain at HKD 78,940,000, or USD 10,226,448.
