Lewes got a Banksy?

There's an extraordinary good painting on the bridge under the A27 down from the sports club. A bonfire person shaking hands with a mason person and words to effect that 'you don't know half of what goes on.'
Don't know what its about but it's so well done, it's worth a visit.

Sooner it gets painted over the better

It is criminal damage; plain and simple. And it will not be tolerated by certain people in that area. Do not take part.

Is the bonfire person wearing Cliffe colours by any chance?

I would like to see this "rather good" painting but I don't understand the location. Where is this "bridge under the A27". I find the entire idea of a bridge under a road very confusing. Do you mean the bridge over the A27 that goes to Kingston?

There's a bridge carrying the A27 over Ham Lane; does that help? If you go past the Sports Club on Cockshut Road and turn right, as if you were going to the Stanley Turner grounds or Rise Farm, you go through a tunnel. Its walls have long been the site of some rather creative graffiti. Who are these "certain people" who will not tolerate it? They seem to have had precious little effect on it so far.

As a shutterer carpenter I resent that the noble brutalist chic of my handiwork should be defaced by proletarian representative art forms.
Poured concrete represents the pinnacle of architectural form.

Went back and took a photo, so anyone can have a go at interpreting it.
I no longer think it's a bonfire person: what I though was a fiery cross looks more like a bloody cross. What's the logo in the head?
Vandalism- I suppose so, but I don't feel it's the same as defacing a train or private property. It's actually brightening up a very ugly space.

Ok where to start...
The two figures are wearing the typical uniform of business, suit and tie.
The figure on the left has, as its head the illuminati all seeing eye enclosed in a pyramids capstone and is holding the masons square and compass.
An obvious reference to the hidden controlling aspect of the multi tiered organisation of the masonic lodges. Notice how the left figure is mounted on a collection of triangles, perhaps a reference to the fact the masonic lodges are built on the beliefs of the more recent ancient psychopathic egyptian pharaohs that believed they were gods.
The figure on the right has, as its head the symbol of the U.N and is holding a somewhat inverted symbol of the church. As you suggest the cross is not burning but pouring blood. Perhaps a reference to the marriage of church and state which as we all know has been pouring blood on the ground in rivers for millennia.
I believe what the artist is trying to portray is the way the world really works, that through business, there is an unseen control which is guiding the world in the direction it requires for world government and omniscient control of everyone's lives.
Or perhaps it is just a pretty picture.

Or it's the All Seeing Eye/Eye of Providence which is also a symbol of the idea that there's a conspiracy in world governments blah blah. And the weird structures could be a representation of a geodesic dome, but could also be references to freemasonry like many of the other symbols. I think the idea is that there's a conspiracy of secret governments and individuals driven by the Bilderberg Group, and they're in cahoots with Our Rulers.

Whatever. I think it's rather good. It's a sight more interesting that the stained paintwork.

I like The Grange Gardens, and the way the teashop has the most odd mixture of china from the charity shops
