This Banksy which shows a child assembling Union Jack bunting while crouched over a sewing machine, was originally put up in May 2012 on the wall of a Poundland retail store in Wood Green, North London. The News of its disappearance a couple of months ago hit the Headlines and locals were in uproar as they had come to treasure the piece, which attracted tourists to the area. Now the piece has been sold in a private auction in Covent Garden, for just under £1.million. Protesters from the world of Street art have said that these pieces should be kept for public viewing.
