Who Stole Clet's Heart

Turn left arrow with pierced heart, Clet Abraham, piazza del Municipio, Livorno
This is the first traffic sign “improved” by Clet Abraham I saw in March 2012. I deleted the two old stickers because I didn't like them: you can see below how the image was posted.

In due time the municipality removed all the Clet's signs, selling some on eBay and keeping the others in storage. Some were used for the recent Clet Abraham's Exhibition and just a few days after that, I saw something strange.

That first sign was still around, with the unmistakable ugly stickers, but without the heart, which is itself a sticker. Someone lifted it and maybe used it on a cleaner sign... Who stole Clet's heart?

A heart mystery! These changes are probably something only a blogger would notice, care about, and act upon.

Dina - With these modified signs going for several hundreds of Euro, I am sure others are interested...

I didn't steal anything, but I'd like to have one.

Whoever stole it should be punished. It is much cuter with the heart. :)
