New York: A mural stenciled by the British street artist Banksy on the side of a Hollywood gas station, five years ago, has been auctioned off for more than 200,000 dollars at a Beverly Hills auction.

The 9-by-8 foot " Flower Girl " mural sold for 209,000 dollars on Thursday at an auction, featuring almost 100 works by more than 30 artists, The Los Angeles Times reported.

The winning bid came from a Los Angeles buyer who requested anonymity.

The piece of art is a four-ton rectangular slab of white brick with black spray paint.

The auction featured five other works by Banksy completed between 2002-2006, and fetched 421,250 dollars.
