    And then and then and then and then and then (Red), 1999

    Mr. DOB, one of Murakami's most familiar characters, represents a hybrid of Japanese styles and Disney aesthetics; bringing him into high art represents a bridge between fine art and entertainment. "In the West, it certainly is dangerous to blend [high art and commerce] because people will throw all sorts of stones," says Murakami. "But that's okay-I'm ready with my hard hat."

    Estimate: $6,000 - $8,000.
