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.
