Painting Sells for $1.4 Million, Then Shreds Itself

posted by Mr Kenneth - 

A painting by the artist Banksy was auctioned off at Sotheby's in London  on Friday for about $1.4 million . . . then immediately shredded itself.   It turns out Banksy had been planning it for years, and installed a  shredder in the frame, just in case it was ever sold.

So it's an  anti-capitalist protest.  Ironically, it might be worth even more now.   

You can't hear the shredder at the end of the auction, but there's a  beeping sound and the crowd goes silent.
