The famous photograph of the painter Salvador Dalí, in which he is sitting on a sofa shaped like a lip, is going to be auctioned and would be worth up to 15 thousand pesos.

The firm Morton Subastas, as part of its event “Photography. Includes Old Techniques and Photography Books”, has 104 lots and one of them has two images of the Catalan painter.

In lot number 53 you will find two pieces: one where the painter considered a pillar of surrealism can be seen in the distance and the other up close, on the sofa that he himself created, inspired by the actress Mae West.

Both vintage prints are in 18.4 cm and 12.3 cm postcard format and are valued together at estimates of between 10,000 and 15,000 pesos, according to the auction house.

The Morton house auction will be held online and will close next Saturday, February 20 at 4:00 p.m. If you are interested or interested in acquiring or ‘bidding’ on these photographs, you can bid until then through the auction house’s website.

Sony’s ‘Shark Tank’ show announced Thursday that it has a new shark.

This is Braulio Arsuaga, CEO of Grupo Presidente and president of the National Tourism Business Council.

Arsuaga joins the panel made up of Carlos Bremer, Marcus Dantus, Arturo Elías Ayub and Rodrigo Herrera. She will also take the place of Patricia Armendariz, the Mexican businesswoman who last month announced her departure from the program.

Arsuaga is also a Director of Grupo Gigante, Inmobiliaria Conjunto Polanco, Fundación Gigante, Novag Infancia and Ver Bien para Aprender Mejor.

He added that the sixth season will be released soon on Sony and Claro Video.

Seiko Hashimoto was appointed this Thursday as the president of the organizing committee of the Tokyo Olympics.

She replaces Yoshiro Mori, 83, a former prime minister of Japan who was forced to resign last week after making sexist comments about women. Basically, he said they talk too much.

Hashimoto participated in seven Olympics, four in the winter and three in the summer. According to historian Bill Mallon, his seven appearances are the highest number for a “multi-season” Olympian.

With her appointment, the former athlete made history again in Japan, where it is still rare to see women on boards of directors and in positions of political power.

Hashimoto, 56, has been the Minister of the Olympics in the government of Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga. She was also in charge of gender equality and empowerment of women.

He competed as a cyclist in three Summer Olympics (in 1988, 1992 and 1996) and in four winter Games (1984, 1988, 1992 and 1994) in speed skating on ice. He won his only medal in 1992, a bronze in speed skating.

Hashimoto is linked to the Olympics in many ways. She was born in Hokkaido, in northern Japan, just five days before the opening ceremony of the 1964 Tokyo Games. Her name, “Seiko”, derives from “seika”, which translates to “Olympic flame”.
