For sale at Sotheby’s (Sale 12021; Lot 138), another sculpture that I really like. Pre-estimate at 70-90K GBP.
It was cast and unveiled (in my opinion) at the peak of the Banksy hype in 2006.
It’s an edition of 12 and measures 25 by 30 by 21cm.; 9 7/8 by 11 3/4 by 8in.
Catalog quotes Banksy:
They exist without permission. They are hated, hunted and persecuted. They live in quiet desperation amongst the filth. And yet they are capable of bringing entire civilizations to their knees. If you are dirty, insignificant and unloved then rats are the ultimate role model.
