The mysterious Banksy has popped up near his home city of Bristol, England. The artist posted a photo on his Instagram account showing a new stencilled artwork on a road sign in the small town of Clevedon, which is about 13 miles away from Bank’s home city. The art depicts an elderly couple carried by two kids.

Some say that the image drew from the impending Brexit when the United Kingdom will withdraw from the European Union, mainly to create stricter immigration rules into the nation. There are a number of disastrous economic effects that could effect the UK. One is the reduction of care staff for the elderly as a number formerly immigrated for a job. With that, the older generation would, what Banksy painted, ride the backs of the younger citizens for support.

Like with most Banksy art pieces, the sign disappeared within 24 hours of going public.
