Red Dots ~ Sold Tag

A red dot on a piece of art indicates that the piece has been sold. This is an American gallery tradition. By using the red dot, the gallery can indicate a piece is no longer for sale while still leaving it on view for the remainder of an exhibit.

It's purpose is the same on a FASO website. Little red dots appear on images that have been marked with an Availability of Sold.

Red Dots only display on thumbnail images unless you have attached PayPal to your account. 

When PayPal is attached, a red dot will also show on the Detail and Zoom view of the artwork.
