GAZA, April 14 (UPI) -- A door mural that is believed to be the work of street artist Banksy was seized by police after a Palestinian man accidentally sold it for $175.
The mural, painted in shades of blue and black on a door from a house damaged during fighting between Israel and Hamas militants last summer, depicts the weeping figure of mythical Greek character Niobe, who is often associated with mourning the loss of her children.
Rabie Darduna, the door's original owner, said he did not know it was that valuable and wants it back. He has reportedly hired an attorney to look into the matter.
The mural currently sits in the library of Khan Younis local council in southern Gaza pending further action.
