‘Occupy London’ Statue Attributed to Banksy

The street artist Banksy is said to be the creator of a statue recently unveiled at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London, home to that city’s “Occupy London” protest.

The statue is a large Monopoly board, with the game’s mascot, Uncle Moneybags, begging for money beside what appears to be a visual representation of a toxic asset. There are some heavily watermarked images—not very “occupy,” in our opinion, but whatever—on this site.

As with any work like this, you should take its attribution to Banksy with a grain of salt, though this doesn’t seem to be very off-the-mark if it’s an imitator. ‘Occupy London’ Statue Attributed to Banksy
