It’s his most ambitious NYC installation yet, spanning the side of a sedan and box truck.

3. An audio component was uploaded to Banksy’s website to go with the piece. It’s ripped from the notorious “Collateral Murder” audio leaked by Chelsea Manning to WikiLeaks, which features the sounds of U.S. soldiers firing on Reuters journalists.

4. This is Banksy’s most well-protected piece of NYC street art so far, shielded behind a fence and some barbed wire.

Banksy hasn’t had much success keeping hooligans from defacing his work this month in New York. We’ll see if this barbed wire keeps the vandals away.

5. The barbs on those wires certainly aren’t stopping fans and photographers from getting a closer look at Banksy’s piece.
