Banksy Diamond Jubilee graffiti

 

Street artist Banksy is believed to have stencilled two pictures as a contribution to the discount cialis generic  Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

This painting of Her Majesty sporting David Bowie’s signature Ziggy Stardust face paint appeared in the artist’s hometown of Bristol yesterday morning. The image of the Queen with her eyes shut mirrors that of Bowie’s original Aladdin Sane album cover, with the main difference being the substitution of the original orange and viagra in uk online blue face paint for a more patriotic red and blue.

Banksy Sewing Boy :: The picture shows a young boy of Asian origin hunched over a sewing machine and uses Union Jack bunting as an apparent nod to uniquely British celebrations.  Created in Banksy’s conspicuous black-and-white style, the picture shows the little boy kneeling on the pavement and frowning in concentration while he works. Wearing a t-shirt, shorts and sports visor on backwards, he appears to use an old-fashioned, Singer-type sewing machine to stitch the viagra drug red, white and blue bunting, which extends far behind him to be strung up on a wall.

Singing in the reign!

 

and their were parties everywhere… union flags and bunting out in force, dancing in the streets, high teas, pomp, ceremony, royal command concerts and parade paying tribute to the monarch.

I love the British sense of humour!

It’s 60 years on the British throne.
