The mysterious and world famous UK-based graffiti artist known as Banksy has been tagging the worlds cities with provocative art for some years now. His work often deals with controversial themes such as how war affects the day-to-day lives of children and families. Banksy has explored this theme in his work more than once, including in a piece known as Little House on the Prairie Fenced that was originally displayed at his Banksy Versus Bristol exhibition in Bristol, UK.

In the piece, the viewer recognizes from the title what seems to be a normal scene of a day in the life of one of the girls in Little House on the Prairie, the famous series of novels written by Laura Ingalls Wilder. However, the girl is carrying a huge assault rifle on her back, ammo in her pale, and stands within a metal, electrical fence. The scene seems to suggest how war can corrupt Americas heartland and the ideals that go with it.
