Footnotes

  • Provenance: A gift to the current vendor from the artist and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Pest Control Office. This work is unique.

    The present lot was commissioned by Greenpeace for their 'Save or Delete' campaign to highlight the problems of global deforestation and combat the illegal trade in logging. The original art work features some of the main characters from Disney's 'The Jungle Book' which were then transposed on to a photographic image of a devastated forest for the campaign. This new image was intended for use on Greenpeace posters, billboards and postcards, which were printed but never put into circulation because of the protectionist policies at Disney.

    A version of the photographic poster is illustrated in 'Banksy Wall and Piece', p. 161.
