An anonymous artist, known for installing art on roundabouts, has erected new displays for the first time in two years.
At least four of the roundabouts in Ashford have been decorated in the latest guerilla art effort by the mysterious man commonly known as 'Roundabout Banksy'.
The unknown sculptor has put a snake bearing the EU stars on the Conningbrook Hotel junction, being chased by a hedgehog with a Union Flag tongue.
On the other side of the mound is a rat with the abbreviation 'gov' on it - a tongue-in-cheek creation that has also been placed on the Drovers, Eureka Park and Prince Albert roundabouts this week.
The unnamed satirist has previously made four models, all but one seeming to make a statement about Brexit.
In June 2017, the first piece appeared on the Eureka Park roundabout. It featured three sharks - each with an EU sticker - chasing a swimmer.
Two months later, one of the town's busiest roundabouts got a similar treatment. The Junction 9 piece saw a hare looking up at a dangling carrot suspended from its back.
This artwork used smaller stickers, with the Union Flag attached to the hungry hare and the carrot adorned with the European Union stars.
The theme continued with the artist's penultimate piece of 2017, which comprised of a squirrel holding a balloon with a distorted British flag on it.
The squirrel sculpture was later auctioned to raise money for Pilgrims Hospices.
Finally, in October of that year, a small tree with leaves made to look like notes from £5 to £50 showed up on the Tank roundabout.
A sign alongside the kooky creation read "Government property Mays Tree £", and signalled a shift from the use of animals and Brexit motifs.
This last outing gave interested art enthusiasts the largest clue to his identity, as he signed the back with 'Mr Mongo'.
The tree was to prove his final work until this week, when the rats, snake and hedgehog turned up on the Conningbrook roundabout.
