Banksy: Armoured Peace Dove

This wall marks the spot where over 40 people were killed during the first Intafada (the little holes along the top are from bullets).

While Banksy was painting it a lot of people came over, some to shake his hand and others telling him to go away. Eventually the local MP was called out to diffuse the eighty-strong crowd that had built up (by which time Banksy had left and the piece was completed by the local kids).
