Banksy does his bit!
Closed

Banksy has given a new piece of his work to Southampton General Hospital. It was not painted on their walls; instead it was gifted to them and hung in a foyer near A&E with the full support of the hospital’s management.

The official description of it is: “a young boy kneeling by a wastepaper basket, discards his Spiderman and Batman model figures in favour of a new favourite action hero - an NHS nurse”!

Banksy left a note for the hospital staff too: "thanks for all you're doing. I hope this brightens the place up a bit, even if its [sic] only black and white”...

I did read that once this is over, the hospital will auction it off to raise funds!

I quite like both the picture and its sentiment! What about you?

I like this and I like the idea of it being auctioned off to raise funds

It's a good picture and hopefully will raise substantial funds when auctioned. I also hope it is a turning point and less "street art" will be done.

For once I like this stencil and at last he has not daubed it some random wall or bridge which would be graffiti,I trust any funds raised will go straight to NHS front line staff benevolent fund and not to Public Health England who will only waste on more unsuitable gowns from Turkey.

Yes it's poignant I suppose, but...
.
a) You'd never see me playing with dolls
b) You'd never see me in a romper suit
c) We never use(d) rubbish bins with holes in the side
d) You may have seen me playing with my Corgi Batmobile, Tri-ang train set, Lone Star ( push-along ) train set or Scalextric :).
e) You may have seen me experimenting with electricity ( BANG !!! :)).
.
Otoh, a century ago it's quite likely my great aunt Audrey, then a little girl of west Somerset and similar age group was just so inspired to become a SRN some years later...
