This seminal photo with strong message deserves its place in Metropolitan.
Generations of unborn quants will remember this work of unknown genius.

If his chief good and market of his time
Be but to sleep and feed? (c)

FWIIW it is in Praça Martim Moniz right across the street from where the few remaining junkie street walkers in the town hang out at night. The business aint what it used to be. It wasn't me.

It is full of symbols:

left-hand: girl and trash bin
right-hand: car with a line "Managing Cash" and above that "Loom"
Two happy men and another one behind with t-short with printed "Dead skull" image.
MoneyGram banner

and "Quant" at the center next to idle man.

One can try decoding these symbols exactly like everyone is looking into cover picture of the NY issue of the "Economist".

PS. Btw, at Google "Quant" is not there yet. Did you come back from the future?

Seems about as banal as seeing "how much" spray painted on a wall in manhattan.

Sheeeyiiiit. I liked it better when I thought it meant "Nonius was here."

I get a chuckle thinking about Nonius as Banksy. I imagine him tagging buildings with snippets to unsolved problems, the real art being that nobody thinks to glue them together. A signature like the Gavin Belson signature edition.
