Auction result well in line with expectations

The work Untitled (Kangaroo) by Lofty Bardayal Nadjamerrek was sold in the The Serra Collection of Aboriginal Art including property from various vendors auction at Bonhams in Sydney in July 2020. The price achieved of AUD 4,880.00 (€ 4,144.73) was within expectations - the estimate range had previously been set by the auction house as AUD 4,000.00 – 6,000.00.
