Very rare signed and numbered screenprint from the total
edition of 500. Less than 50 from this edition were
hand-signed by Banksy. Banksy, the
most popular and famous graffi ti artist in the world, has never been shy about criticizing the government. Queen Victoria, who was the monarch of the UK from 1837 until her death in 1901, was famous for stating that women are “not able to be gay” and also for passing anti-gay laws to go along with that conviction.
Banksy takes a comical shot at the queen and her anti-gay stance in his piece by suggesting that she herself is a lesbian caught in a sexual act with another woman.
