In partnership with APENFT Marketplace, Sun will list the Monkey Head NFT from the “Twelve Digital Zodiac Heads” collection as the first NFT collectible for sale following the launch of the APENFT Marketplace Mainnet on April 15 at 8 p.m. SGT.
APENFT plans to set the starting price at 666 WTRX. The highest bidder will win the valuable Monkey Head NFT.

The highest bidder will be awarded a Legendary Genesis NFT; the second highest registered bidder at the end of the auction will receive an exclusive Monkey Head-themed Epic Genesis NFT; the third highest bidder will win a WIN NFT HORSE NFT themed zodiac animal head.
For the first time, a rare work of art in digital form will debut in an auction room in the decentralized world.
One of the animal heads will also be featured as a rare special breed horse in WIN NFT HORSE, a horse racing game co-launched by APENFT Foundation and WINkLink on the TRON blockchain.
The Monkey Head NFT has an important symbolic value in Chinese culture, as monkeys represent intelligence and rebellion. The combination of Monkey Head NFT and APENFT Marketplace marks the beginning of ancient works of art in the decentralized world.
Digital art is among the hottest trends in the industry this year, with many art forms expanding their presence to NFTs. People have started to focus on the artistic experience in digital spaces and exhibitions. Digital art auctions are becoming an integral part of today’s auction market. Since 2021, major auction houses like Sotheby’s and Christie’s have held multiple stand-alone digital art sales, all racking up impressive interest and revenue.
The twelve zodiac animals are an important symbol of Chinese culture and its mythology. Each newborn is assigned an auspicious animal based on their year of birth. These animals are immutable landmarks that follow every Chinese throughout his life. They serve as a bond to maintain national pride and connection to their common Chinese heritage. The twelve bronze heads in the Old Summer Palace are the rarest of all the physical incarnations of these symbols.

Additionally, Sun donated a number of well-known works, including The Nose and Lying Naked Woman with a Necklace (Marie-Thérèse), to organizations such as the APENFT Foundation to support the development of the NFT art.
