Journey history of the rescued balloon v.2

This painting is a part of the "Street Art Avenue" series. When "Girl with a Balloon" hit the auction, no one suspected that the picture frame had a remotely operated shredder that, when hit with a hammer by the auctioneer, would turn half the painting into shreds. This is how Banksy played on the nose of everyone who tries to value and commercialize his work. The escaping balloon is the only element of the picture that has not been damaged.
