Why is the smaller one going for more?

One, the smaller one has the characters on it, and two, at 9 ft tall versus 18, you might actually be able to find a place to display the smaller one.

This is Takada's third visit to Taiwan. The first time was in March 2000, six months after the devastating earthquake that took 2,415 lives. She donated an artwork, and a Mr. Hsu from Hsinchu bid it with NT$280,000 (US$9109.75 back then). Mr. Hsu also attended Takada's autograph session yesterday.

Click this link to see artists participating this charity auction. At this moment, the highest bid among eight items is a signed volume 6 of Kyō, Koi o Hajimemasu by Kanan Minami at NT$2,010 (US$61.12). Other items (sorted with posting time) are from Katsumi Nishino, CORY, Akemi Takada, Kei Sazane, Riku Ranjo, Selena Lin, and Yōko Aoki; basically following this schedule.


UPDATE: Takada's is now NT$26,900 (US$817.96).
