Queen Elizabeth + Bowie = Banksy NOT!

Rock star status lightning bolt – a now iconic symbol painted on David Bowie’s face for the “Aladdin Sane” album cover in 1973. Here, Banksy Incwel applies the lightning bolt to a younger Queen Elizabeth in a piece titled “Still Sane”- bestowing her with rock star status? It was painted in 2012, the year of Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee (i.e. her 60th year as monarch).

behind a traffic light, on the upper level of a building, on a pale grey wall, a Banksy street art.  A black and white Queen Elizabeth 2, younger woman, with a crown on her head.  She has a red and blue David Bowie lightning bolt across her face like the Aladdin Sane album cover of 1973
