The digital art collection is called WarNymph Collection Vol. 1 “and consists of 10 works. The community suggested that the child depicted in the paintings is the son of Elon Musk and Grimes named X Æ A-12.
The singer created NFT in collaboration with her brother, digital artist Mac Busher. Some tokens are accompanied by specially recorded tracks “Mars Theme”, “Ærythe” and “Anhedonia”.
The winners of the auction were chosen at random. The most expensive lot was the video “Death of the Old” with flying cherubs for $ 388,938. Some NFTs were sold in dozens and hundreds of copies. The main profit came from short videos “Earth” and “Mars”, which bought for $ 5.18 million.
The singer plans to donate part of the profits to the NGO Carbon 180, which fights carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere.
