Banksy Rodin The Dunce sculpture

Banksy – The Dunce statue¬† Under a Buy One Get One Free offer Banksy promised to place the second copy of his parody of Rodin’s The Thinker sculpture on the streets. This picture captures it when it was on the roadside underneath the Westway just outside of Paddington. Re_titled ‘The Dunce’ it sits contemplating the traffic whizzing alongside, overhead and underneath.

The sculpture is set on a solid concrete block and has the appearance of being cast like any other statue. It includes a cast of a traffic cone on it’s head _ in this case someone has added on another cone for a bit of colour.

STATUS _ Removed.
