British graffiti artist Banksy has won international fame for his poignant social and political commentary, all conveyed through a satirical, and often dark, street art style. The mysterious artist’s work has adorned buildings throughout the world, but, more recently, pieces have been popping up in New York City.

His latest confirmed statement is a disturbing stuffed animal truck which was spotted in Brooklyn on Thursday afternoon. This piece – named “Sirens of the Lambs – consists of a run down farm delivery truck. Out of every crevice, the faces of stuffed animals pop out and appear to be crying out for help. You can see more photos of the truck here.

Sirens of the Lambs began its tour in the meatpacking district of the city and then branched out to other neighborhoods. According to a bystander, “[The truck] was so loud. Not sure but I think someone was in the truck banging as if the animals were trying to escape.” As the truck moves through New York City, it provides a sobering reminder that every piece of meat was once an animal which probably did try to escape and, in the end, lost the fight for its life.
