Signs of the Apocalypse: "My Bed" goes for over $4 million bucks.

Truly, the zombies are marshaling.

Tracey Emin's "My Bed," complete with cigarette butts, crumpled sheets and underwear, sold for 2.5 million pounds ($4.25 million) on Tuesday, a record for the artist, who was present at the auction and applauded and whooped delightedly.
Emin's 1998 work, which fetched over 1 million pounds above its top estimated price, and a Francis Bacon portrait of Lucian Freud, which sold for 11.5 million pounds, were the show stoppers in a 75 strong collection of portrait-themed works auctioned by Christie's.

Its literally her freakin' unmade bed and a bunch of her miscellaneous crap lying on a carpet.

The "artist", with her "art". Four megabucks worth.
Whoever bought this thing is forever safe from the zombie hordes, due to having no brain at all. Any other rich, brainless knobs feeling left out that want to buy my unmade bed for $4 million, I'm open to offers. I'll even deliver it in person.
