The hand - a glove or a statue? Either way, it's cool!

Karen, it's a statue! It DOES look like it could be a glove, huh?

Daisy said...

That image is so striking! I also thought, at first, it was a hand in a glove.

If you turn the statue around and show it to a British person, they'd interpret it as "f*** you". lol

JoJo - well fuck off rather than you really - the origin is that in the middle ages the English archers were so lethal as a military thing that if the French captured one they cut the first two fingers of their right hand off so they could no longer fire their arrows. Raising the two fingers showed that they were still fully equipped fingerswise and ready to do severe damage.

WR - Thanks so much for the history behind the gesture!
