From the sublime to the silly, artwork, furniture and memorabilia owned by Dennis Hopper was auctioned off in New York this week. Typical was an Andy Warhol portrait of Mao Zedong which the actor shot two bullets through and still fetched $302,500.

The two-day sale at Christie’s, which ended on Wednesday and combined with a November auction of Hopper’s most valuable art work, totaled more than $14.7 million including the auction house’s commission.

The Warhol, which set a new auction record for a single print from the pop artist’s iconic Mao series, soared to more than 10 times its high pre-sale estimate, while another Warhol screenprint of Marilyn Monroe from 1967 fetched $206,500, about four times the estimate.
