Dorothy Isn't So Innocent in the Banksy 'Stop and Search' Piece

The Banksy 'Stop and Search' artwork cleverly parodies the Wizard Of Oz in a whimsical manner. The piece shows Dorothy being stopped by a police officer who is obviously suspicious about what she's really carrying in that basket of hers. Given what's displayed here, I'll assume that this shake down took place in Kansas. Or perhaps the Land of Oz upped their security ever since the Wicked Witch of the West started messing things up.

Unfortunately, the Banksy 'Stop and Search' is no longer available. But at least you'll be able to gaze at it right now as you try to figure out if Dorothy's carrying narcotics in her basket. Stats for Wizard of Oz Graffiti Prints Trending: Older & Warm
