Banksy Dismaland memorabilia auction held in Bristol

A selection of memorabilia from Banksy's Dismaland theme park has sold at East Bristol Auctions in the UK.

Banksy Dismaland art
Banksy's Dismaland exhibit opened unannounced in Weston-super-Mare

The BBC reports the collection sold for a total of £10,190 ($14,888), with a highlight being a rat stencil in the style of Banksy's work that made £2,400 ($3,506).

While it's unclear whether the reclusive artist was behind the painting, the bidder was clearly willing to take a punt.

Dismaland opened in Weston-super-Mare in the summer of last year, with tens of thousands attending.

Part of the proceeds from the sale will be donated to a local homeless charity.
