Banksy subverts expectations in this image of the Virgin Mary with the baby Jesus, feeding the infant from a bottle marked a toxic sign. As well as adapting the traditional subject of the Madonna, the work is a social commentary on the dietary habits of the West as so much affordable food is processed and pumped full of E numbers, a toxic diet unavoidable for so many people.
