There wasn't any placard from an artist claiming credit, or title, just a sign saying "Please do not climb".
They're right in the middle of a cluster of bank offices and branches on Bishopsgate, outside the Deutsche Bank office and across from branches of HSBC and Lloyds - and a two minute walk from the Bank of England.
It looks like they're made out of paper mache and black paint.
What do they mean? Are they a comment on the run of financial crises and scandals in the City since 2008?
