Warhol? What hole?

Chinese whispers seem to be distorting the office gossip at Deutsche Bank.

Art-loving visitors to its London office will notice that the large dice sculpture, said by some staffers to resemble a model of human intestines, has moved 10 feet (3.048 metres for our European readers) across the main foyer, taking it further away from the main wall.

At the same time a large, and no doubt very pricey, Warhol painting has disappeared from the main wall and been replaced by, well, another large and very expensive Warhol painting. No doubt the artist would have appreciated this gesture of repetitive iconography.

Bank insiders say the original painting had an unseemly accident when a junior member of staff leant on the dice sculpture, pushing it onto the painting and inflicting a three-foot tear. Oops - thank heavens for insurance.

The bank's press office, however, is bemused. It says the painting is "completely intact" and that it has left the London office because it is "on tour" in New York.
