Don't miss your chance to own this remarkable piece of art that is now immortalised as a special edition Polystone figure.

The British graffiti artist Banksy chose to depict the Statue of Liberty as a girl, standing on a box, picking her nose. Not exactly the majestic symbol of freedom and shining beacon of hope it was intended to be. The fact that she’s a child, blatantly picking his nose, seems to suggest immaturity. She’s standing on a box, falsifying her height, which could be linked to the same idea of being dubbed, or promised something unachievable (the american dream, in it’s many forms) with the idea of America.
The child also has a kind of arrogant look on her face. Like she is capable of throwing a tantrum at any second. She is not only displaying childish behavior and trying to elevate herself to something she’s not, but she’s arrogant about it.
The Statue of Liberty is iconic of America and this portrayal links it to a more modern outlook on how we (perhaps cynically) view America today.
