Where to see it

Walled Off Hotel in Bethlehem

"The greatest crimes in the world are not committed by people breaking the rules but by people following the rules. It's people who follow orders that drop bombs and massacre villages."
Banksy, Wall and Piece

Why we love it

Everything that refers to the artist Bansky is surrounded by mystery and fascination, this piece is probably one of the best known, highlighted in his book “Wall and Peace” (2005). The image can be seen in Jerusalem, on an unknown façade in an unremarkable location, today overlaid with Plexiglas for preservation. The location is particularly prominent for the meaning of the image: peace.

Using graffiti to communicate, Banksy presents us with social and political issues that should concern us, making us think and reflect on issues that are sometimes uncomfortable for us and that we avoid.

As a curiosity, to know that Bansky has fought in court for the copyright of this work against a postcard company, but the courts have denied him the rights because, having his hidden identity, he cannot prove his authorship.
