Banksy’s Love Rat piece was first discovered in Liverpool, UK, and is simple enough!

It features a rat holding a red paintbrush in his two little paws and on the wall he has drawn a heart. The heart is dripping with red paint (bleeding?), probably due to the rat’s unsteady paws, but it is bold and complete. In this image, people see a city rat that stands for love, and perhaps they see themselves?

You choose.
