Weiwei's Dog Mobile

Tuesday wasn't a good day for Ai Weiwei. His wife and business partner Lu Qing was interrogated for three hours by Chinese police (CLICK) and his latest load of tosh failed to attract a single bidder at Est-Ouest Auctions in Hong Kong (CLICK). The 2005 Mercedes Benz G-class van painted with outlines of an Irish wolfhound entitled The Dog Mobile: A car for Francis Bacon was expected to fetch HK$1.5m to HK$2.3m. The paint job took place in Japan, where the car was bought (title link for the full story in the South China Morning Post). And the latest police investigation into Weiwei's doings is over pornography (CLICK).
