Andy Warhol‘s life-sized portrait of Elvis Presley will hit Christie’s upcoming contemporary art auction in New York City. The silkscreened piece, titled Double Elvis (Ferus Type), is one of a handful of celebrity portraits that the late pop artist produced in the early 1960s. It features the legendary rock and roll singer brandishing a revolver as observed in his most popular 1960 western, Flaming Star. The auction house is estimating that the portrait will sell for a whopping $30 million USD.

The portrait will be auctioned off at Christie’s in New York on May 17. Check out the artwork above and let us know your thoughts.
