Banksy's "Nola" girl prays for pennies from heaven...

Speaking of "Street Art," the ever-elusive phantom that is the underground art world's "Damien Hirst," namely BANKSY, has just released a silk-screened print of an image from his recent swing through New Orleans. Produced by UK print house PICTURES ON WALLS, the signed and numbered edition cashes out at a very hefty £450 GBP (approx. $670 USD), making us hope that in these economically dire times, the proceeds from this very politically-motivated image are being donated to a local New Orleans charity, although no information to confirm this has been released.
