The Walled Off Hotel box set is a remarkable piece of art exclusively available for in-person purchase at Banksy’s Walled Off Hotel in Bethlehem. It features a high-quality digital print based on the original mural created by Banksy on the main road in Beit Lahiya, in the northern Gaza Strip, in Feb 2015.

The mural conveys a poignant message about the resilience and innocence of children caught in the crossfire of war and conflict. It reminds us of the universal desire of children to play and have fun, regardless of their circumstances. It is a remarkable piece of art that highlights the need for peace and compassion in the world, especially for those who are most vulnerable, the children.

The image for the box set is based on the artwork on view at the Walled Off Hotel in Bethlehem. This artwork beautifully captures the joyous moments of children swinging on a ride they have improvised on an Israeli army watchtower. The intricate detailing of the artwork showcases the children’s exhilarating experience with great precision. The watchtower’s door appears broken, and graffiti covers the base, hinting at its abandoned state. Despite playing on a symbol of oppression, Banksy emphasises the human spirit’s resilience and strength, showcasing the need for joy, peace, and a glimpse of hope.

The box set black and white digital image also includes a unique piece of concrete hand-sprayed in either red, green, or both colours, a reference to the Palestinian flag in the frame base. The concrete adds an additional layer of authenticity and texture to the artwork. The set comes in a subtle white box frame that enhances the artwork and comes with a purchase receipt from The Walled Off Hotel.
