    – how does anyone figure this “artwork” is worth $100M? it’s trend trash.

    – and even if you really believe it’s worth that much, what was it doing sitting around where upstanding citizens like Mr Tianen can get at it?

        “M” also refers to 1,000. “MM” is the common abbreviation for 1,000,000.
