What do the artist’s heirs say about the auction? Marina Picasso, the artist’s granddaughter, speaks enthusiastically about the ceramic bowl:

“It is joyful, happy. It represents life … It is one of those objects that have been part of our life, our intimate lives — my life with my children.”

Her son, Florian Picasso, is very excited about the upcoming event. He stated that in this way they are trying to build a new young community of Picasso fans:

“We are trying to build a bridge between the NFT world and the fine art world. I think it fits within Picasso’s legacies because we are paying tribute to him and his way of working, which was always being creative. Everything is evolving.”
