Ten original works by Banksy are set to be auctioned on Wednesday. They’re expected to raise $600,000.
The AP reports: “The piece expected to top the bidding is ‘Avon and Somerset Constabulary,’ an image of two police officers peering through binoculars. It’s estimated to sell for $120,000 or more. Also included is a screen print titled ‘Di Faced Tenners,’ showing several 10-pound notes with the face of Princess Diana in place of Queen Elizabeth II.”
