Banksy’s The Girl With The Pierced Eardrum in Bristol (@Anth0ny_Ward via Twitter)
Like us, Banksy’s world-famous ‘The Girl with a Pierced Eardrum’ now wears a face mask.
His 2014 mural is a take on Johannes Vermeer’s famous painting, The Girl with a Pearl Earring. Banksy ingeniously used the outdoor security alarm for her earring.
Now she is wearing a blue surgical mask. Sometime in the last few days it appeared over her face.
It is unknown who put the face mask on the wall but it is thought to have been the elusive Banksy himself.
