Banksy (British, b. 1974) (After): Save or Delete. Digital print in colours on recycled paper, unknown edition. This poster was issued with a full sheet of eight stickers.

The image, which features some of the main characters from Disney's The Jungle Book transposed onto a picture of a devastated forest, was intended for use on posters, billboards and postcards. These were withdrawn because of the protectionist policies at Disney. A version of the photographic poster is illustrated in 'Banksy Wall and Piece page 161.
