A mound of porcelain seeds hand-painted by Ai Weiwei. The seeds are the same type that the Chinese artist used in an installation that is currently covering the floor of Tate Modern's Turbine Hall. From an edition of 10, it was expected to sell for between 80,000 pounds and 120,000 pounds at Sotheby's Feb. 15 auction of contemporary art in London. The final price was 349,250 pounds with fees.
