Pyrrhic Victory

This sign is like some kind of twisted inversion of RenĂ© Magritte’s famous painting, The Treachery of Images, where he painted a pipe, and declared below in words “This is not a pipe.”

Only instead of a pipe, this image is of a brick wall at a co-op building, and the sign declares that the brick wall is a garden, not a garbage dump. Foucoult must live there.

Ceci n’est pas une garbage dump.
