Squir­rel sculp­ture’s mys­tery ap­pear­ance

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - News -

Just six weeks af­ter the last sculp­ture ap­peared, Ash­ford’s “Round­about Banksy” has struck again, this time join­ing the cows on the Drover’s round­about.

The piece ap­peared some­time over the week­end and fea­tures a squir­rel hold­ing a heart bal­loon, dec­o­rated with a Union Jack.

This is the third mys­te­ri­ous art piece to ap­pear on a busy Ash­ford round­about this year, with the first be­ing a swim­mer chased by sharks on the Eureka Park round­about and the sec­ond one a hare and car­rot on the junc­tion 9 round­about.

All three pieces of art­work fea­ture a sticker, or in this case a bal­loon, with the Union Jack on them, in­di­cat­ing they are all by the same artist.

Al­though, un­like the new­est ones, the two pre­vi­ous pieces also in­cluded stick­ers of the EU lead­ing peo­ple to be­lieve that they were in re­la­tion to Brexit.

As of yet, no one has come for­ward to claim re­spon­si­bil­ity for in­stalling the art pieces or to ex­plain what they ac­tu­ally mean.
