In March, Christies sold a sculpture of Dainichi Nyorai, the Supreme Buddha or Great Sun Buddha, for about $14.4 million, setting a world auction record for traditional Japanese art. The wooden piece is about 26 inches tall and dates to the 12th century. The interior of the body holds a wood placard with a pagoda-shaped finial, a crystal ball on a bronze lotus stand and a crystal pagoda.
