Alberto Giacometti's "L'homme qui marche 1 (Walking Man 1)" was sold in less than eight minutes to an anonymous telephone bidder for a staggering $104.3 million during an auction at Sotheby's.
The previous record for a piece of art sold at auction was $104.1 for Pablo Picasso's "Garcon a la Pipe".
"We knew that there was going to be a lot of demand for this great piece of art, but we were really amazed," Melanie Clore, deputy chairman of Sotheby's told CNN.
The life-size bronze sculpture of a man was made in 1961 and was originally cast in an edition of six by the Swiss artist.
