How often do you see murals inspired by literature? Brooklyn-based Iranian street artists Icy & Sot, a team that is no stranger to controversial street art, recently teamed up with Sonni to create this piece in New York that features a soldier being tied up and disarmed by a bunch of Sonni's little characters, a reference to a scene in the novel "Gulliver's Travels" written (with a much longer title) by Jonathan Swift in 1726.

After completing the political mural in Brooklyn, the artists painted over it and replaced it with a tombstone that reads: "R.I.P Gulliver 2014-2014."
