Bin Laden auctioned in London

The puppet depicting the figure of Osama Bin Laden in the “Spitting Image” programme is to be auctioned.

Sotherby’s, the auctioneering house, is to auction the puppet of Osama Bin laden, used on the television programme “Spitting Image”. In this programme, caricature puppets of famous politicians, sportsmen and newsmakers are involved in witty exchanges of words, a pastiche form of comedy mixed with political satire.

The creator of the Osama Bin Laden puppet, Roger Law, has decided to auction the figure he created at Sotherby’s, London, on November 29th. Receipts from the auction will go to the Afghan refugees and the victims of the World Trade Center attack.
