For those with a love for big cats, a great art choice is Banksy’s Barcode Leopard Tiger. Banksy has created a monochrome print that depicts an escaped tiger outside of his cage. The cage has been transformed into a bar code symbol, with the bars themselves being the bar code print. Is this merely a cute way to display bars or is it a deeper symbolism calling for a discussion of illegal tiger trading on the world black market? Whether one chooses to take the print at face value or apply deeper meanings to the art work, it is an interesting piece.
