This displayed piece-of-art is a painting by Aboriginal artist Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri titled “Warlugulong 1977”. Going against the various rumors of its prospective price between $1.5 million -$1.8 million, the dot painting “Warlugulong 1977” by the late Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri, fetched a record price of $2.1 million at auction in Melbourne.
This cost of the painting is a clear reflection of the whopping interest of the people in Aboriginal art as the price is more than double the previous record of $1.056 million set in May by Emily Kame Kngwarreye’s “Earth’s Creation”.
Who paid the world record price for “Warlugulong 1977”?
The mystery got unveiled when the National Gallery of Australia proudly handpicked this piece.
