THIS Is the Hidden Image in Banksy's Concrete Confessional

Banksy's art is always hitting on so many levels.

Earlier, M&F posted about the hidden face that kept showing up in the night time pics of Banksy's Concrete Confessional.  Well, the same face also showed up as a mini canvas at Banksy's unannounced Saturday art sale at the park.

The face has now been identified.  It turns out that this image is from a previous Banksy work dating years back.  Banksy never repeats pieces, but apparently sometimes he revisits them.

Dig it.  Click the jump to check out all the pics comparing the images.

  1. Also, has anyone found the sculpture that was the source for that supposed Hermes stencil? Because to be honest that looks like a woman to me. I'm not expert on Greek or Roman statues or mythology, but in the quick search I did, most of the Hermes statues I saw depict him as a male wearing significantly less clothing.

    And Banksy does repeat pieces. At least he used to.
