Local Drainage Company Metro Rod Cambridge is located within grappling distance from a Banksy!

The large piece, which depicts Jesus Christ on a metal grappling hook, can be seen inside a glass container thanks to an anonymous art collector. Aptly named The Grappling Hook (2017), the unique piece – signed by the mystery street artist Banksy – can be viewed from now until the end of September at Ely Cathedral

Arguably one of Banksy’s most iconic pieces, it is said to highlight the struggles surrounding the West Bank and the division of the two most holy cities in Christianity. Banksy himself describes The Grappling Hook – which was bought at a London auction for £83,306 – as a “military grade grappling hook and combined spiritual ornament”.

When it was sold to the collector in March this year, it marked the first time Banksy had put his work up for sale since 2013 when he set up a pop up shop in New York, Visitors can now view the artwork which is attached to a large four metre long knotted rope in a glass container on top of its original hand-made custom box. The piece, described by Bonham’s auctions as “arresting, humorous and polemic”, is on a temporary loan to the cathedral from the owner for the summer months.
