Until the anonymous street artist Banksy posts images to his website, we have no way of confirming that this is infact an original Banksy piece… but, regardless, it is a truly amazing piece of graffiti art. These images were posted by The Lonely Villein to his Flickr account and, we thought, they were worth sharing regardless of their pedigree.

The image depicts an origami crane standing by a real riverside, fish grasped in it's beak. The simple outline of the crane is given real depth by the carefully applied shading, and the fish is done in an almost photorealistic manner. At the right angle, you can even catch a glimpse of the crane's reflection in the water, which is almost magical to behold.

    Everybody loves shiny stuff, and now you can customize your platform toys with shiny paint from Montana. In my own experience, Montana has the best range of colors and best application of all the spray brands I've tried.
