The work reflects an artist in traditional attire giving a final touch on the word “BANKSY” spray-tinted in red, was scribbled on a wall on the Portobello Road in the west London district of Notting Hill. It is being said that before putting the work up at eBay, the seller shielded the piece with a plastic-sheet.
