Banksy Greenpeace Jungle Book Poster, Stickers
Item Details
Description
Save or Delete poster by Banksy and 8 matching stickers! . Poster Size: 16.5 x 23.25 inches. Sheet of stickers: 12 x 8 inches. This lot includes 8 of the matching stickers! There is another one of this poster on sale now on Abesbooks.com for $3400. The controversial artwork was produced by Banksy to promote the Greenpeace campaign against global deforestation. Characters from Disney's Jungle Book stand blindfolded in front of an executioner, amidst a brutally razed forest. The print run is unknown. After the image surfaced Disney issued a cease and desist order, but the organization proceeded to use the image on billboards and campaign leaflets throughout February and March 2002. The former Communications Director at Greenpeace James Turner explained: "Our letters to the company urged them to consider the reality of rainforest destruction, and how their characters might help raise awareness of this issue. Their concern for the environment didn't stop them threatening 'further action', sadly. We also used a new version of the image this year [2010] as part of our forest campaign. Leaflets were handed out at the Latitude festival this year, for example. We didn't hear anything from Disney this time around. Banksy produced the image for us in the first place, of course. I hope the money it raises goes to good use" (quoted in Carrington's piece for The Guardian). The original (acrylic and permanent marker pen on card) sold for £78,000 (including premium) at Bonhams in 2011. Congratulations to the winning bidder!
