Lot Essay

There are six in the edition of this 1969 sculpture, only one was actually borrowed for the infamous scene in Kubrick's 1969 'A Clockwork Orange'. Another of this edition sold at Philips in New York in 2010 for $25,000. Despite not being the actual piece used in the film, the sculpture is a rare connection to A Clockwork Orange and memorabilia rarely comes to the market.
