Pino does some magnificent big clowns, doesn't he? I wouldn't mind having a house full of his sculptures.

Auction houses have been giving low estimates on many things in recent years. Maybe it is to stimulate interest. A person seeing something might go for $10-12K feels they might could afford something. If it was shown with an estimate of $100-120K, they would just turn the page. I once used auction estimates as a price guide, but now I only use hammer prices.
