Art Market Watch

I was pretty astonished to see that one of my fellow Italian artist, Maurizio Cattelan, has sold one of his last works at Sotheby's for $ 7,922,500! A record for an Italian contemporary artist, especially considering he's one of his most famous works is "The ninth hour" where the Pope John Paul II gets hit by a meteorite...
Being Italian I am kind of flattered by all these money spent for his work, but the real question is: having all that money to spend...would you really buy his art and put it in your house?
