Prehistoric hunter with a supermarket trolley[1] is the informal title to a piece of faux rock art by British artist Banksy. It showed a prehistoric hunter with a supermarket trolley.

Banksy stuck the piece of rock art onto the walls of the Romano-British galleries of the British Museum in 2005. The accompagnying sign, entitled “Wall art – East London”, read: “ This finely preserved example of primitive art dates from the Post-Catatonic era and is thought to show early man venturing towards the out-of-town hunting grounds. The artist responsible is known to have created a substantial body of work across the South East of England. Most art of this type has unfortunately not survived. The majority is destroyed by zealous municipal officials who fail to recognise the artistic merit and historical value of daubing on walls.”
