Posted: Updated:

Would you like to have a sculpture of Kate Moss in your home? You may have just missed your chance. Marc Quinn's "Microcosmos (Siren)" sculpture (2008) of the British supermodel in a contorted yoga pose sold yesterday for £577,250 ($908,245) at a Sotheby's auction.

The sculpture is made out of ten kilograms of 18-caret gold and was sold alongside more tasteful pieces of art such as Lucian Freud's pen and ink drawing, "Interior Drawing, the Owl" (1945) and Leon Kossoff's "A Street in Willesden" (1985). Overall, Sotheby's London made £17,809,000 ($28,020,681). Not too shabby!
