Lot Report


The current poster features an image of Mr. DOB, one of Murakami's first characters created in 1993. The character is based off of Japanese anime and manga, however draws influences from popular culture as a whole (the ears immediately call to mind Mickey Mouse). This is one of Mr. DOB's more fear-inducing renditions, baring a set of large sharp teeth under his wide grin.
