Maharajah fetches £1.7m

John Gibson - Bust of Maharajah Duleep Singh (1859-60)Here's proof of a booming Indian economy. Last Thursday, at Bonhams' Indian and Islamic Sale in London, a marble bust of Maharajah Duleep Singh by British sculptor John Gibson, which had been estimated to be worth £25,000 to £35,000, fetched a staggering £1.7 million! What a shame that the nouveau riche of India are allowed to reap the rewards of child slave labour (CLICK). Think of this next time you watch a Bollywood movie.
