You never know who you'll see next on inline skates!
The painting "Lenin on Rollerskates (Who Put the Revolution on Ice?)" features the Russian revolutionary doing a little blading.
It is one of ten works by the English graffiti artist Banksy that will be auctioned Wednesday.
The painting (spray paint on canvas) is expected to fetch ₤20,000-30,000, or $40,000-60,000 (USD). It is being auctioned by Bonhams in Knightsbridge.
Now if we could only persuade the old boy to wear a helmet.
