The most photographed woman of the 20th Century, Marilyn Monroe, is the latest icon to inspire an NFT Collection. “Marilyn Monroe™ Metamorphosis” features twelve digital artwork by different artists reimagining the Hollywood Star in the 21st Century.
Marilyn Monroe’s NFT Collection is a project of, ABG, a brand management group that owns the majority stake in the intellectual property rights for the Marilyn Monroe™ trademark.
Marilyn Monroe’s NFT Collection
The American cinema image of Marilyn Monroe depicts her as a glamorous sex symbol. The NFT Collection offered alternative images to this. For example, Blake Kathryn used the breathy, seductive rendition of Happy Birthday that Monroe sang for President John F. Kennedy at his 45th birthday as inspiration.

Most of the pieces centered on Monroe’s metamorphosis from Norma Jeane to Marilyn Monroe. Monroe was also portrayed as a pop culture goddess, neon sign and a free spirit driving her top down
The Brand, Icon and Woman
It is only fitting that Marilyn Monroe is the first female celebrity to be featured on Ethernity Chain. Just last year, reports cited Monroe as the 13th highest-paid dead celebrity and the only woman on the list. This is a testament that she remains to be a major cultural icon and can easily pull off her own NFT Collection.
Marilyn Monreo is also famous for being a style icon. This can potentially be another NFT Collection. After all, her white dress in the iconic ‘flying skirt image’ was auctioned off for $4.6 Million in 2011.
If you want to take part in the action, the auction is ongoing on Ethernity Chain.
