A fire door from Le Bataclan theater in Paris disappeared on Saturday, and along with it Banksy's mural of a mourning woman. According to authorities, it was stolen on Friday night.
ABC News reports that the theater's alarm went off at 4:25 am on Saturday morning, and the thieves were seen leaving in a van. Paris police saw the CCTV footage at Bataclan, but it has not been released to the public. They are continuing further investigation into the matter.
On Saturday, Bataclan's official Twitter account released a statement. "It's a deep sadness that moves us today," the tweet read. "Banksy's work, a symbol of remembrance and belonging to everyone — locals, Parisians, citizens of the world — was taken from us."
The Bataclan mural is only one of the works of art in Paris believed to be painted by the famously anonymous British artist. Banksy is known for making bold political statements, like his piece critiquing French immigration policy which popped up all over the city. In October last year, one of his paintings, which was auctioned off to the tune of $1.4 million, self-destructed and shredded itself.
