A CLOSER LOOK: Sotheby's Bored Ape Auction Ends Tomorrow. Find Out More About The 5 Apes for Sale:
As Sotheby’s Natively Digital: Relics art auction is set to end tomorrow afternoon, let’s take a closer look at the five Bored Apes that are for sale.
As the Bored Ape Gazette previously reported, Sotheby’s is holding the fourth edition of its Natively Digital art auction this month.
In total, the auction house’s collection consists of seven NFTS, five of which are Bored Apes from notable collector PrepsTothePros’ personal collection.
“They are perhaps the most iconic NFT project to date, and one that is hugely responsible for the rise in popularity of the entire scene,” Sotheby’s wrote of the Bored Ape Yacht Club collection. “BAYC is a digital member’s club created by Yuga Labs and consists of 10,000 cartoon apes, each one unique and varying in rarity. Born out of crypto culture, they spearheaded the member’s club and digital collectibles trends as more and more people grew affectionate to these apes and what they represent. For this reason, we see them as so much more than just an ape, they are art.”
