Controversial sign in Stamford Hill


The artist who put up this and other road signs in Stamford Hill (London) reportedly thought he was celebrating local life. However, it got reported to the police as a hate crime. Maybe he was unaware of the significance of the red triangle, which makes the sign read “Beware of Orthodox Jews”. It’s a good job he didn’t use a red circle which would have read “Orthodox Jews forbidden”. Perhaps putting the figure on a blue square would have been better.

His series of signs remind me of Mythogeography.
