Banksy uses toy animals to highlight animal cruelty and factory farming [Exclusive Photos]
The world-renowned street artist, Banksy, is in the midst of a month-long residency in New York City, with a new piece being installed each day in a different neighborhood around the city. His latest is in the Meatpacking district and is a creepy, but clever take on factory farming and animal cruelty.
Called "The Siren of the Lambs", the piece is a mobile artwork using a truck carrying stuffed animals with amplified toy animal noises to bring attention to the cruel conditions real animals suffer when being transported from factory farms to slaughterhouses.
Banksy posted the following video of the piece touring the Meatpacking district:
