For his next piece, Banksy will create a 12’ cube of clear, terribly hard resin containing a garish swirl of $12 million in currency inextricably embedded inside.

It will sell for $42 mil.

Shortly after Devolved Parliament was sold, Banksy reacted on Instagram.

“Record price for a Banksy painting set at auction tonight,” he wrote. “Shame I didn’t still own it.”
