Banksy Leaves a New Heartfelt Artwork at The Walled Off Hotel, 2019

The Walled Off Hotel opened its doors this morning with some slightly different decor. Overnight Banksy had installed a brand new impressive piece of artwork in the hotel lounge opposite the reception.

The artwork is made from concrete and is a replica of the separation barrier, the 400-mile wall built by Israel along the West Bank, Bethlehem.

The image is of a young girl playing the popular puzzle, the Shape Sorter Toy. The toy is simple, it has holes of different shapes, along with pieces that fit correctly into their respective holes. The shapes are usually circle, square, diamond etc.

The young girl has different shapes to choose from such as, the traditional square in green, the symbol of the cross in yellow, and the Star of David in blue. She also holds a pink mallet in her left hand.

The huge heart shaped hole hammered into the replica separation wall artwork could indicate love is the missing piece.

What are your thoughts about this powerful new Banksy piece? Feel free to comment below.
