Oscar award-winning actor Sir Anthony Hopkins has sold out his debut NFT collection The Eternal Collection in under 10 minutes.
The collection, created in partnership with Orange Comet, Inc., an NFT and Web3-focused design agency, features 1,000 original cinematic art pieces inspired by different performances from the actor’s long career.
According to Orange Comet, the body of work “conceptualizes an interpretation of the vast character archetypes Sir Anthony Hopkins has portrayed over his illustrious film career drawing its potent energy from his stimulating body of art.”
The creative visuals and animations with titles like The Jester, The Lover, The Ruler, The Rebel, The Giver and The Eternal each represent various archetypal characters played throughout the Hollywood actor’s career.
Orange Comet alleged that the collection’s sellout was the fastest in OpenSea’s history, though Cointelegraph was unable to confirm the claim prior to publication.
The celebrated actor thanked the NFT community in a tweet stating that he still couldn’t believe the news of the collection’s sell-out.
The 1,000 one-of-one NFT images come with randomly selected utilities ranging from receiving autographed art books featuring the actor's paintings and drawings, to getting the opportunity to engage in a conversation with Anthony Hopkins via Zoom, to random selections of personalized NFTs with a message from Hopkins airdropped into the buyers' wallets.
