As is common in this type of format, the objects themselves are not auctioned.
“I’ve been collecting these personal items for about 30 years, and I was a little tired of them being locked up in a vault, where I had to keep them because I didn’t want them to get damaged,” Lennon tells Variety.
“We did some exhibitions in Europe with the items, and my intention was to take the collection and tour, and I still hope to at some point, but obviously the last few years haven’t been helpful.”
Part of the proceeds from the sale of the NFTs will go to Julian Lennon’s White Feather Foundation.
