Science Fiction heroes and villains also share the spotlight in this very special auction...Alfred Molina’s wayward tentacle as Doctor Octopus from Spiderman 2 and a nefarious Thuggee costume from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom blockbuster.

I Nyoman Masriadi

Indonesian star Nyoman Masriadi fared better than many contemporary Chinese artists. His painting showing a parody of movie hero Indiana Jones carrying a giant diamond sold for HK$3.38 million, more than its HK$3.2 million top estimate.



I NYOMAN MASRIADI
(Indonesian, B. 1973)
Blekik Jones and Soekarno's Treasure
signed 'Masriadi'; titled 'Blekik Jones and Soekarno Treasure' (lower left); inscribed 'Selasai Sudah' (middle centre)
acrylic on canvas
300 x 200 cm. (118 1/8 x 78 3/4 in.)
Painted in 2011


Quote:
The title of the painting, "Blekik Jones and Soekarno Treasure", scribbled on the bottom left of the painting, contains more clues that aid in the unpacking of the pictorial narrative. Blekik Jones is the unmistakable and somewhat eccentric name of the struggling hero in the painting. His name alludes to Indiana Jones, the intrepid adventurer and treasure hunter. Indiana Jones is one of American cinema's most revered characters, recognisable by his accoutrements - a bullwhip, a fedora and a leather jacket. Masriadi appropriates key visual elements of Jones, outfitting his lead character with a leather jacket slung over the shoulder, a fedora reminiscent of Jones, a rolled up treasure map in his left hand and in addition to the original Jones outfit, a pistol in a holster. But while Jones is the all-American cinematic hero, BlekikJones comes from much humbler stock. Blekik is a little backwater sleepy village settlement on the northern fringes of Yogyakarta, the central Javanese town in which Masriadi lives and works. As a settlement, it is not particularly distinguished by any geographical or touristic features and does not lay claim to any small-time notoriety either. In this regard, Blekik Jones embodies some of the most unlikely and incongruous character traits possible.

Masriadi's protagonist is the archetypal small-time hero, recycled and refashioned from a pastiche of contradictory elements. As a painter, Masriadi derives a great deal of pictorial influence from his interest in video gaming. The highly charged formal and symbolic compositions in his works draw from the imagination and aspirations often revealed in the work of video gaming creators. Blekik Jones celebrates small-time heroism, bearing similarities to the action heroes created by video game makers.

Painted figure aside, the context of the painting is important in the unpacking of the painting's narrative. The "Treasure" reference marks a continuity with the Jones narrative but when read alongside the reference to Sukarno, the first president and hero of modern Indonesia, the painting gains in historical relevance. The era of President Sukarno, marked by a consciousness of the industrialised West's dominance, guided Indonesia to align itself with the fledging nations and economies of the non-West and the formation of the Non-Aligned Movement. President Sukarno was seen to be more sympathetic and aligned to the communist systems and governments in the Soviet Union and China. He espoused breaking free from the reliance on foreign economic contribution from the West, and often bore a strong anti- Western and anti-capitalist stance. He was well-known for his mistrust of the capitalist market system and the venturesome mining and resource-gathering activities of the West.

Seen in this context, Masriadi's Blekik Jones and Soekarno's Treasure seems to make an overt comment on history, particularly Indonesia's relationship with the West in the Sukarno era. It is a poignant work contemporaneously too, especially in relation to the PT Freeport gold and copper mine union strikes presently taking place in Papua, Indonesia. Yet, the narrative that Masriadi builds is typically neither straightforward nor particularly pointed. Instead, his allusion to this era in Indonesian history is laced with humour and irony. On the one hand, Blekik Jones, hailing from one of the most deeply-seated Javanese cultural areas in Indonesia, could and should be seen as the natural inheritor of all the wealth implied in the painting. Yet, as the bifurcated character Masriadi has created him to be, he can also be seen as a product of the West and is seemingly cast by the painter to advocate the exploitative, opportunistic and mercenary facades of cultural imperialism.

With Blekik Jones and Soekarno's Treasure, Masriadi has created a new hero in his oeuvre of painted figures. The hyper-real gleaming, ebony black skin of the figure buffed to a glossy shine exudes all the initial impressions of a traditional hero type, physically attractive, stronger, braver and more clever than the average man. Yet, Blekik Jones brawny body, crawling with sinews, and his thick and coarse countenance set in an unattractive grit, defies a straightforward positive categorisation. Masriadi's hero possesses, and even encapsulates, the postmodern rejection of traditional wholesome values. He is a hero true to his times, openly revealing of the contradictions and struggles he embodies.

Don't see a whip...could that mean anything? Considering the penetrating insights here I'd say there's a better than average chance it does...hmmm.

The hand-made 12-plait kangaroo-hide bullwhip produced for one of the Indiana Jones movies was also estimated at 10,000 pounds to 15,000 pounds. It sold for 20,000 pounds ($32,000) to an Internet buyer.

It was one of more than 30 props produced by whipmaker David Morgan and featured in the “Temple of Doom” film in 1984. The whip was first donated by Steven Spielberg to a Unicef charity auction in 2001, when it was sold for 68,000 pounds, Christie’s said.

“Indiana Jones is a timeless classic,” said Tim Lawes, general manager of the dealership, The Prop Store of London. “That was the cheapest whip with a provenance I’ve seen, though. They have made $40,000 to $50,000 before.”

Lawes paid 18,750 pounds for the ‘Grail Diary’ prop from the 1989 movie “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.”

Lawes said film memorabilia was now attracting alternative investors, particularly for Bond, Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Spielberg films.

A prop chalice made for “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” sold for 11,875 pounds, more than a 3,500-pound estimate.

The auction, known as Drama, Action, Romance: The Hollywood Auction, will take place on December 15 in California.

Indiana Jones fanatics can purchase the gun used by Harrison Ford in Raiders of The Lost Ark for 50,000 pounds.

The six-shot revolver is an original film-modified Smith & Wesson Hand Ejector Mk II and was used through the majority of filming in Tunisia.

Ford used the weapon in the shoot-out at the Raven bar - one of the most memorable scenes in the movie.

It is one of only two pistols that exist today that were used by Ford in the production of the film.
