The artwork was posted without any caption this morning and looks as if it’s been done over a door. The location has not been discovered or revealed as of yet. The street artist’s publicist Jo Brooks confirmed that the Instagram account is authentic and “the only official account.”

@BanksysTeddy tweeted out that the figure in the artwork strongly resembles Niobe, the tragic character in Greek mythology associated with mourning and often depicted weeping over the death of her children.
