Climb every mountain

More info on the living artist who attracts the biggest bucks. Apparently the price paid for the Hotere at Dunbar Sloan's was $280,000 plus premium. The AASD ( a list of Australasian auction prices published online from Australia) which lists the price at $308,000 adds the buyer's premium but not the GST. With that figuring the recent Webb's price would be $326,250. In fact the price paid by the buyer, including GST, ended up at $330,781.25. Thanks S, thanks Roger Douglas.
