Rock Paper Scissors – Snap Classic

May 13, 2021
Two hands engaged in a game of rock paper scissors. One hand is holding 'scissors' up, the other 'rock'.

When the two greatest auction houses in the world – Christie’s and Sotheby’s – vied for the privilege of auctioning off $20 million worth of art in 2004, little did they know that they would be forced to engage in an ancient form of ritualized combat known as… rock paper scissors.
