LOS ANGELES » For the first time in the United States, an original Banksy street mural is going up for auction.

The executive director of Julien's Auctions, Martin Nolan, says the company will sell Banksy's 2008 Los Angeles mural "Flower Girl" in December.

The nine-foot by eight-foot piece originally appeared on the wall of a Hollywood gas station. It shows a black stenciled image of a girl holding a basket and looking up at a security camera atop a tall plant. Nolan says the mural is expected to fetch at least $150,000.

It will be among the lots featured at Julien's Street Art Auction on Dec. 5.
