Banksy’s piece, Child Labor, which depicts a young boy sewing a bunch of British flag souvenirs, was seemingly removed from its Poundland location (which you can see above had a protective cover over it). Residents of the neighborhood were furious of its removal saying that the piece was a gift and should’ve remained there. Owners of the store denied removing the piece. However, the piece has peacefully arrived in Miami for auction with a starting bid of $400,000.
