On the ground germinates to a plant, that the girl seems to have planted with the small spade next to it.
The work was placed in the vicinity of Marble Arch, the monument in London, where the klimaatactivisten of Extinction Rebellion already two weeks long protest organizing.
It was speculated that Banksy’s work would be, given the great similarity with his other work. But now is also artist and Banksy-collector John Brandler formal: the going here is definitely a new Banksy. Both the execution as well as the theme of the work, according to him, no room for doubt.
“Not only is the theme of the klimaatactivisten a theme behind which Banksy to implement,” says Brandler to The Guardian. “The work also seems to be a continuation of an earlier work, that last december, appeared in Port Talbot (a town in Wales, ed.).’
