Kiwi Auction House asks buyers to smash artworks for the NFT’s sake


Kiwi Auction House made strange recommendations to the winners of glass plate portraits. In fact, the sale included the ownership of the NFTs plus the original plates. Interestingly, each portrait was accompanied by a small brass hammer.

In the last months, Nirvana photographer has encountered negative reactions due to the sale of NFTs brand. Nevertheless, the latest stunt of the Kiwi Auction House got mixed reactions so far. It is not common when the head of art tells the winning bidder to “break it.”

New Zealand artist Charles Goldie basically created these glass portraits from 1910 to 1920. He is renowned for his paintings of Maori chiefs plus their communities. Definitely, Goldie aimed to protect the heritage of the Maori people who became his friends.

Particularly, a custom-pine box shows these portraits along with framed printing. Similarly, NFTs and hammer are included in one lot.
“You may want to digitize it forever,” said Charles Ninow, head of art webb’s.

Charles Frederick Goldie was successfully sold for AU$51,250. While Kiwi Auction House sold its original portrait for a surprising $76,250. Most likely, the successful sale of these portraits was because of NFTs.

“It’s really essential to New Zealand’s history, and somehow we are immortalizing it,” said Charles Ninow.

The Web, however, did not comment on the allegations. Besides, we don’t know whether the winning bidders followed the recommendations or not.
