From the earliest times we’ve been employing signs and symbols to let others know where we are, what we do. I loved the deft signs for the cobblers, in Venice
though my favourite has always been Paris’s wordless Curb Your Dog campaign
Sometimes, though, the sign’s so ambiguous only a sense of humour or a little sleuthing will reveal its meaning. Take the angel sign I came across in Urnäsch, an ancient, picture postcard village at the foot of Santis Mountain in Switzerland.
Now, I can see how a cute chunky Swiss bull could tell me about a restaurant
especially when it’s hanging out over a pretty terrace with tables and chairs inviting us to come, eat
but a trumpet playing angel?
My guess is the wife liked it, so they bought it anyway and put it up to partner the bull – on the building they bought next door 🙂
Fun and games with “The Sign Says“, this week’s WP Photo Challenge.
