BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — A mural stenciled on the side of a Hollywood gas station five years ago by the British street artist Banksy has fetched more than $200,000 at a Beverly Hills auction.

The Los Angeles Times reports (http://lat.ms/1aFPMXw) the 9-by-8 foot “Flower Girl” artwork sold for $209,000 on Thursday at an auction that featured nearly 100 works by more than 30 artists. The winning bid came from a Los Angeles buyer who requested anonymity.

The mural shows a little girl holding a flower basket under the eye of a surveillance camera planted atop a tall stalk.

Banksy, who refuses to reveal his full identity, began his career spray-painting buildings in Bristol, England. He is known for his silhouetted figures and spray-painted messages.
