Eat and be eaten

This is the most awesome graffito I've seen. I don't know who the artist is, but the German title Fresson & Gefressen Werden roughly translates to "Eat and be eaten". The fearsome predators are devouring one another, but out pops a bespectacled man wearing a suit and carrying a briefcase, the worst predator of them all. Evolution? The painting is on the "5 Pointz" building, Long Island, Queens, New York City. The owner of the property wants to demolish it to build high-rise flats, but the 5 Pointz graffiti community is petitioning the government to make it a protected cultural landmark.
