RT @[email protected]: This is incredible.
Banksy artwork "Girl With Red Balloon" is auctioned at Sotheby's.
Bidding goes to £860,000 at which point it is declared sold.
Suddenly alarm goes off and shredder starts INSIDE FRAME.
Picture drops through shredder and is destroyed.

At last, the first great artwork of the XXI century
@tomasekeli Next time, Banksy should use flash paper and vaporize the artwork. At this point, it has been reduced to many slivers of the original work, but the pieces are not destroyed. They may yet be preserved and reassembled. (Heck, now they even have a viral story and documented performance piece.)
