Al-Zarqawi Matted, Framed, Auctioned at Sotheby's

Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was deaccessioned by al Qaeda along with a photograph by Rineke Dijkstra and a painting by Marlene Dumas in a whirlwind evening auction at Sotheby’s last week. The winning bid was placed by a proxy bidder representing a coalition of Western investors. It is rumored the lucky winner is an American super collector.
