Legendary British street artist Banksy returns to his roots for his next piece of art, further proving reports of his arrest were a hoax. Just surfaced in his hometown of Bristol, U.K., Banksy's latest is his own rendition of Vermeer's famous "Girl With a Pearl Earring" painting, choosing to go with an outdoor security bell in place of the pearl in a piece that he calls "Girl with a Pierced Eardrum." Banksy took to his website to reveal the new mural, which was created with his signature stencil style in a known local art and music district. Unfortunately, within 24 hours of his reveal, the piece was vandalized with dark paint thrown across the woman's body.
