Fake Leica Meets Minecraft?

Back at the end of August, the "Fake Leica" sculpture by Chinese artist Liao Yibai that was at the Leica Store Los Angeles sold. It was the largest of several such "Fake Leica" sculptures, and was listed for $1M USD. No word on if it did fetch that much or who bought it - but we have an idea. You may have heard the name Markus Persson. No? He's the guy that created the game Minecraft - which he recently sold to Microsoft for $2.5B USD. Turns out, he just bought a $70M USD house up in Beverly Hills. As you might expect, this mega-expensive bachelor pad comes complete with a raft of cars and art, including "a giant Leica camera." Doing the math, it seems this may just be where that sculpture ended up. One thing's for certain - it's got a sweet view of L.A. below.

Update (12/21/14):

The sculpture in the house can be seen at about 1:09 into the CNBC video (above). It's much smaller than the one that was at the Leica Store Los Angeles - so one of the other copies. Guess "giant" is relative, eh CNBC? The one seen in the house above is "Edition 12."

Update (12/22/14):

We reached out to some of our contacts and while we don't know who bought the "giant Fake Leica" in L.A. - we do know it only sold for about $300-400K USD back in August.
