Yesterday this superb piece by Banksy sold for £78,000 (approximately $121,700) at Londons Bonhams Auction house. Entitled 'Save or Delete the Jungle Book' the piece was originally comissioned by Greenpeace back in 2001 to be used in a worldwide campaign to highlight the devestating effect of deforestation on the animal kingdom.

A cease and desist order from Disney soon stopped the campaign from seeing the light of day due to copyright infringement and now this suberb piece from Banksy, possibly my favourite piece from the artist, makes its way into private collectors hands.
