Cremaster fanatic Karsten sent us this field emblem found in a church floor in Budapest (is it a coincidence that Budapest was the setting for Cremaster 5?). For more found field emblems, visit http://www.cremasterfanatic.com/ephemera/fieldemblems.html
As always, please email us any field emblems or other Matthew Barney-related information you come across.

New York real estate blog curbed.com reports that Matthew Barney and Bjork were recently outbid on a penthouse loft in Manhattan's new Machinery Exchange at the corner of Baxer and Hester Streets in Chinatown / Little Italy. According to the building's web site, the penthouse apartment was being offered for $4.5 million -- no word on the final sale price.

Matthew Barney's Cremaster 2 sold for $571,000 at the Sotheby's Contemporary Art Evening Sale on November 14, slightly over the low estimate of $500,000 - $700,000. For that price, the winning bidder received not only a DVD of the film, but also a hi-tech vitrine and packaging made from hand tooled saddle leather and sterling silver (photos at http://cremasterfanatic.blogspot.com/2007/10/cremaster-2-on-sale-at-sothebys-new.html).
