A biting satire on the inability of modern man to provide for himself, Trolleys – or Trolley Hunters as it is also known – is a screenprint by celebrated street artist Banksy. It depicts three cavemen bearing primitive weapons and crouched in the act of hunting a herd of supermarket trolleys.

The artwork was first produced in 2006 by Modern Multiples of Los Angeles as an edition of 500 unsigned white prints (though only 100 went on sale) on the occasion of Banksy’s iconic Barely Legal show which took place in a warehouse in LA. Trolleys is part of Banksy’s Barely Legal Print Set, a series of six prints which includes the works Applause, Festival, Grannies, Morons and Sale Ends, and which were sold at $500 a piece.

In 2007, Trolleys was re-released by Pictures on Walls of London in three different formats: 750 signed colour prints in a blue and yellow colourway, 500 unsigned white prints and 150 signed white prints . The UK release differs slightly to the LA edition; in the original Modern Multiples edition the caveman on the right holds a hammer made from wood with a pointed piece of stone while the later Pictures On Walls edition shows the man holding a spear instead.
