Early Warhol for sale in Hong Kong

This sculpted wooden shoe is just one of 46 items in "From Warhol, With Love", a selling exhibition of works by pop artist Andy Warhol at Sotheby's in Hong Kong. Prices start at $10,000 and climb to $1 million U.S. dollars for the most expensive, Warhol's 'Dollar Bills'.

The artworks were brought to Hong Kong from Sotheby's in New York. Wachter says much of Warhol's earlier work was influenced by the artist's trip to Asia in 1956. SOUNDBITE: Jacq
