Two of those paintings Michael Flatley makes with his feet sold for €120k

People scoffed when they were shown on the Late Late – but it appears the Lord of the Dance can do no wrong.

YOU MAY HAVE seen Michael Flatley’s artworks on the Late Late last Friday.

Two of the paintings – which the superstar dancer creates by dipping his feet into paint, going into deep concentration and dancing to the ‘beat in his head’ – were on display.

The segment – as you may recall – didn’t go down too well with viewers.

A sample response:

After all that, the Lord of the Dance star is having the last laugh this morning.

Laughing all the way to the bank, in fact.

The paintings, together, went for over €120,000 at the Morgan O’Driscoll Irish & International Art Auction at Dublin’s RDS last night.

‘The Flight of the Quetzal’ went for €44,000.

And ‘The Power’ sold for €77,500.

It appears those feet can do no wrong…
