Confused about etre and avoir for perfect tense

I have been attempting a little real-life translation and am struggling to understand why this sentence: "la sculpture est vendue en 1986........" uses "etre" as "vendre" isn't one of the 13 verbs normally conjugated with "etre" is it? I'd appreciate the answer if anyone can help. :-)

You may get more help posting in the French forum rather than the general Duolingo forum.

Ooops! Yes, of course. I've just posted another one here as well. :-( I'll transfer them both to there. Thanks for the reminder. :-)
