About

 

This piece commemorates the artist Banksy's unauthorized display "Peckham Rock" that was covertly installed at the British Museum without authorization (original display pictured in product photos). It took the museum staff 3 days to notice the un-authorized exhibit. This wooden sculpture was later released by the museum as a limited edition collectible bearing the text from the first display.

"This finely preserved example of primitive art dates from the Post-Catatonic era and is thought to depict early man venturing toward the out-of-town hunting ground. The artist responsible is known to have created a substantial body of work across the South East of England under the moniker Banksymus Macimis but little else is known about him. Most art of this type has unfortunately not survived. The majority is destroyed by Zealous municipal officials who fail to recognize the artistic merit and historical value of daubing on walls."

Dimensions: Approx. 4.5" x 7"
