Banksy’s mural Very Little Helps, dated 2008, is located in Essex Road, North London. Stenciled on the side of a pharmacy, this funny and political piece depicts a group of children pledging their allegiance to Tesco, a British supermarket chain. Two young children are saluting, while another child is raising a Tesco carrier bag on an electricity cable cleverly transformed into a flag pole. Very Little Helps, even though covered in Perspex, has been “vandalized” several times and is partially damaged by added text, heads of children and the flag have been painted over, but the flag has been replaced by a real one by an “unknown artist”.
