Sale Ends Today is one of Banksy’s least known images and where his sarcasm is most evident. The composition shows a group of women, taken from biblical scenes painted in the 16th and 17th centuries, stencilled black and white as they grieve before the Passion of Christ, but here, Christ is replaced by a banal red poster announcing the end of sales. According to Banksy, this is a true source of desperation. The image is a reference to the repercussions on collective behaviours due to the dominance of a consumer culture produced by capitalism, inviting us to reflect on the relationship between faith, religion and money, and underlining how the creation of meaning, for centuries provided by religion, is today defined by money. The image was never a work of street art, appearing for the first time as a silkscreen print. A large canvas version was auctioned at Sotheby’s in London in 2008.
