$17 million.

"Him" — which is made with "wax, human hair, suit, polyester resin and pigment" — was supposed to fetch only $10 million to $15 million at a Christie's auction in New York City. Instead it got $17,189,000!

The winning bidder remained anonymous. The previous record-setting price for a Cattelan work at auction was $7.9 million.
