What could possibly be less threatening than a banana? Not many things — unless one were to put that banana in the hands of world-renowned street artist, Banksy. In Banksy’s most creative and capable hands even a plain, non-threatening banana can assume meanings never dreamed of before.

Take Banksy’s well-known piece, Bananas Bomb. The origin of this piece of art is not known, but the whimsy mixed with satire is unmistakably Banksy. Three bananas are strapped together with a timer, looking for all the world like a terrorist’s bomb. A terrorist’s banana bomb. What is the deeper underlying meaning behind this work of art? A buyer of this print would have to be the judge of that, but one will never be able to look at a banana the same way again.
