I picked up the print since 100% goes to a good charity, hesitated as not signed. The sculpture, cool, just not for my home.

I passed on both. :(

I debated buying the sculpture, but since I will have to shell out 500 Pounds in a few weeks for the new Banksy, I had to pass.

Grabbed 'em both. Seemed like a no-brainer to me.

Bought the print, still on the fence with the sculpture. It's based on a classic ("Study of Perspective" is probably his second best known work, after "Dropping a Han Dynasty Urn") but the edition size is huge. Still it's selling pretty fast.

Boy, small hands, and I'm not talking about the orange haired devil in the fright house. 5" x 4" x 4" is this the size of a normal hand with a middle finger extended?
