Via dell'Olmo

Still on the trail of Clet Abraham in the San Niccolò neighborhood, part of the Oltrarno area of Florence.
This fishbone arrow shows us that we are closing in on our objective...
In fact, there he is, just under the sign, standing on the doorstep of his studio.

Whenever you see and photograph another of Clet Abraham's signs please feel free to post them. Love his work. It's so original, creative, and funny.

I should make some of these and trade them out in the middle of the night.

They are being copied here now.

The first I saw was of a little figure bouncing on a speed bump. I was puzzled - thinking it to be a new traffic sign and wondered what it could mean. Now I know - fun!
