THE DEAD-END

 

I have posted two or three of these altered Paris street signs before. They are an interesting twist on street art. This sign is the standard European traffic sign for a dead-end. Pasting the symbol of a mythical religious figure on it makes it all the more expressive in its meaning. Most people will only see the religious symbol. The double meaning is a witty and caustic comment on blind religious belief. Now the sign truly symbolizes a dead-end…
