Giacometti.gi A new world record was set this week when an Alberto Giacometti SCULPTURE -  "L'homme qui marche I", sold for $104.3 millionUS.  It was expected to bring between 20 and 30 million... mmm still not bad hey?

And the Sculpture? It's pretty awesome I think I would of thrown my spare mills in if I had some :)
