From Carrie to Mao

Threats of protests, arrests of protesters, a pink diamond and Mao. Just a normal week in Hong Kong.

Carrie Lam took over as CE of the city-state with arrests of Occupy Central protesters in action within 12 hours. But all was forgotten with the Sotheby’s spring sales. The hope of $1 million per carat for the precious 59.6 carat pink diamond appears a bargain against the $98 million offered for Warhol’s Mao. Which would you want to own?

Warhol’s Chinese leader Mao Zedong at USD$12.7 million was a bargain- well short of the top estimate of more than USD$15 million.

Still time to grab the pink diamond due for auction on Tuesday.

Back to reality- Carrie Lam is the new CE of Hong Kong. Hands up who’s happy with that.

Out with the old and in with the new.
