What is the fate of items that were auctioned off? From the bronze bust of Chzech artist Mucha, to “Explorers on the moon”, a Tintin comic autographed by Hergé himself and the three astronauts of Apollo 11, to the Rolex GMT Master owned and worn by Marlon Brando in Apocalypse Now, this series examines the life stories of objects and works now back in the spotlight, under the watchful eye of potential bidders. Each episode focuses on a particular object or work, the story of which reflects the history of that particular era, its culture, customs and accomplishments.
