Valuable hotel artwork accidentally painted over

Well-meaning maintenance workers mistakenly applied two coats of paint over a multi-million dollar sketch. The artistic rendering of a rat by international street artist Bansky was displayed on the outer wall of the hotel in Jamaica. 

“They thought a rogue visitor had debased the walls, and promptly painted over the ones on the outside of the building. When the mistake was realized, they were mortified—as were the owners,” commented a source at the Geejam Hotel to the Daily Mail.
