The hunchback poster was a popular art piece in the 1980s.
Now, in the wake of a major pandemic, posters of the famed characters are no longer allowed in public places, the Associated Press reported.
“Hunchback posters are banned from public spaces,” a spokesman for the Metropolitan Museum of Art said in a statement.
“They are not allowed to be displayed in the museum’s galleries or on public displays.”
The poster is the most famous image from the 1980’s and was widely seen in the media as a symbol of a post-apocalyptic future, according to the AP.
In an interview with CNN, the creator of the poster, Jody Humble, said he thought it was “a really great way to show the world the world’s changed.”
The artist has said that he wanted to show people the “post-apocalypse future” and that the poster has been around for more than 40 years.
“I just love the poster because it’s so iconic, and I just feel it’s a really good way to illustrate the post-Apocalypse future,” Humble told CNN.
“It just gives a lot of people a lot more hope.”
Humble was asked about his feelings about the poster and what he wants the poster to do.
“You know, I think it’s really great that it’s still around.
It’s an icon of a great city, so people can still have that image,” he said.
“But I also think that people need to remember what we’re all about.
I think we need to get back to the real world and focus on what we have to do in our own lives, and not just what we think is cool or what is going on in the world.”
He said that the public should have the right to see the poster “in a respectful way.”
He did say, however, that he thinks it’s important for people to have their views heard and he’s looking forward to the public to see more Hunchbacks.
“What I hope people do is they should be able to make their own opinions about it,” Humbles said.
