The G’morning Shot for May 16, 2012 17

The piece features Union Jack flags draped across the wall and applied to the artist’s signature stencil of a child working on a sewing machine. Created in line with the royal Diamond Jubilee celebration to mark Queen Elizabeth II’s 60-year reign, it’s said that the piece hopes to put spotlight on child labor issues.

Banksy’s gonna have a heyday with the summer Olympics going on in London.

  1. It’s totally “Queens Jubilee” oriented, I think it signifies the Reign of Queen Elizabeth the 2nd. Child labour was still very much a part of society when she became Queen. AS, to the contrast of today’s child. You won’t see kids making bunting(flags) today, whereas you would’ve then.

  2. Excellent! No way I’ll make it to the London games. Hell I lived in LA until two weeks before the Los Angels Games… still didn’t make it.
    Of course Banksy will remain a mystery until we’re long gone… similar to the Nixon files.
    He is honestly an artist of the people.
    Great post Michelle!

Go ahead... I can hear your thoughts. Please share with the rest!
