You Could Own An Original Banksy With N905

The mysterious artist Banksy has sprung up another surprising twist. He is giving away an original sculpture if only you can guess how much it weighs. The street artist made the announcement via Instagram.

The sculpture of the remote-control boat filled with refugees, which featured in Banksy’s “bemusement” theme park Dismaland, is being given away if you make a minimum donation of N905 to the ‘Help Refugees’ charity.

Individuals are allowed to make as many guesses as they want to the nearest gram and the winner will be announced after the competition closes at 8pm on 22 December.


It is an exciting offer to own a Banksy original work after the stunt pulled by the artist at the auctioning of his work. He had shredded a painting which had just sold at a whopping N507.3 million.
