Snowy Mountain

Snowy Mountain by Cui Ruzhuo

Real life is so much better than make believe.  The painting above, Snowy Mountain by Chinese artist Cui Ruzhuo, sold at auction for US $3.7 million in Hong Kong earlier this week, has gone missing.

Security film shows a guard kicking the painting into a pile of trash; later janitors tossed the trash and likely  Snowy Mountain as well.  Interested parties are combing the local landfills, I suspect that it was stolen, but  that appears to be a minority opinion. Should you happen to find it, Poly Auction in Hong Kong would love to hear from you.
