An auction will be held this weekend to sell belongings from the estate of former D.C. Council member Jim Graham, who died in June at age 71.

While Graham’s Adams Morgan apartment won’t be up for sale, the estate consists of an assortment of “weird and wonderful” objects and artifacts Graham had collected over the years, said Chevy Chase-based Sloans & Kenyon, which will host the auction.

Some of the items will include “Two Young Men,” an 18th-century oil painting with an estimated price up to $1,500, and a 12-inch-by-15-inch bronze statue by Austrian sculptor Franz Xaver Bergmann, estimated to cost up to $2,500.

“I would call this a stupendous amassment of the sacred, and the profane, and everything in between,” Stephanie Kenyon, owner of Sloans & Kenyon, told WRC-TV (Channel 4).

The auction takes place 10 a.m., Saturday Feb. 3, and 4 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 4.
