FAA confirm removal of Banksy mural

A spokesman for Fine Art Auctions (FAA) has confirmed that the Banksy piece Slave Labour and Wet Dog has been removed from the sale.

He said:

Although there are no legal issues whatsoever regarding the sale of lots six and seven by Banksy, Fine Art Auctions Miami convinced its consignors to withdraw these lots from the auction and take back the power of authority of these works.
