The Banksy Feed the Pigeons art installation clearly stands for more than what it is, but at first glance there is a sense of anonymity and solitude that might encourage people to acknowledge those real people who do engage in such an activity. That aside, the United Kingdom-based artist reveals a somewhat morbid (or perhaps hopeful) perspective when it comes to the sculpture, stating, "Feed the pigeons and they'll feed you one day."

The third instalment of his 'Back to the Roots' residency, the Banksy Feed the Pigeons installation can be found at the Rue de Babylone in the 7th arrondissement of Paris. It is basically comprised of a bench-sitting cellophane figure--complete with a bucket hat.
