Jim Lyngvild returned shortly after and continued to bid on the cape with the other. He had even had the money to burn for Tuesday's auction and was very excited.

- It is exciting, I think, is that the characters just as well could be from the norse mythology from Africa. The main thing is that it is something that has a spirituality and divinity. And it is far more interesting than all the crap that is being produced today, which you can buy in ILVA, he said to Ekstra Bladet.
