Controversial British artist James Cauty is back at it again. An individual whose art seems to take stabs at the government and take on world issues, Cauty uses a similar tactic within this 'Riots in Jam Jars' piece.

In this staggering work by James Cauty, riots that have happened in London over issues resolving G20 and other events that have made the news are featured. He commemorates these reenactments in jam jars with miniature rioters, police forces and even toppled over police cars.
