It was reported that Banksy’s painting Subject to Availability, created in 2009, was purchased for an amount of 6,325,408 dollars on Wednesday.

The millions-cost picture describes Washington’s Mount Rainier, which is currently suffering from the consequences of the environmental problem. This week, extremely high temperatures have been recorded in the Pacific Northwest. Namely, 44C temperature is making the glaciers on Mount Rainier melt.

Scott Beason, a geologist from Mount Rainier Park, told that he has never experienced such heat as it is now. And to pay attention to such a problem, Banksy created the work, inspired by Romanticism.
