This kids' contrast-style Banksy Grim Reaper Rowing Boat hoodie features a depiction of Death himself, The Grim Reaper rowing a boat.
The Banksy stencil graffiti artwork upon which this Grim Reaper Rowing Boat kids' hoodie is based can be found on the side of the Thekla nightclub and music venue, which is housed inside an old cargo ship moored in the Mud Dock area of Bristol's Floating Harbour, England.
Originally, Banksy had painted a simple Banksy tag on the side of the Thekla before making his getaway in a rowing boat. Bristol City Council removed the tag against the express wishes of the boat's owners.
In retaliation, Banksy returned and painted the famous Grim Reaper Rowing Boat piece.
When in 2006 the Thekla hull was repainted, they deliberately left the rectangular area around the Grim Reaper Rowing Boat piece untouched. Today the Grim Reaper piece occupies a dark grey patch on the otherwise green hull.
Around the Banksy, a number of different coloured patches are now prevalent, where the paintwork has been retouched to cover up other tags that have been left around the Banksy piece by freeloading wannabe artists looking to get noticed by attaching their names to the Banksy piece.
