The sale, totaling £3,287,000 ($6.5 million) was a hit with buyers who are turning more and more toward clean lines, thoughtful color, and more modern design. Top lots include a fiberglass panda from 2003 by Takashi Murakami (ca. $2,716,000) and a Yoshitomo Nara portrait of a sinister little girl (ca. $144,000).
