This meaning can be interpreted and appreciated even more if you put yourself in the physical context of the artwork itself. Walking by a busy urban landscape with a swarm of strangers who don’t say hello and are preoccupied with business, tasks, money, sex, alcohol, etc., and all the condiments of the modern urban condition. Then a rat, an animal seen by you as vermin, reminds you of the essence of being human.
