One of the Banksy’s most recognizable murals has suddenly appeared with a face mask covering the face of the “Girl with a Pierced Eardrum.” Thus without further ado it has appeared to the surprise of passers-by who passed by the street to take some photos of the moment.

We do know that from his Instagram last week he showed us how he was working from home, so his authority can be doubted. Unless it is another of his surprises or magic tricks with which he has gotten used to us over the years; Let’s remember what happened at the auction.

Nor would it be the first time that Banksy’s work it has been “vandalized” by others, so we are faced with all those possibilities. A mask that covers one of Banksy’s works in these days of coronavirus; tell Wally …
