That symbol for emergency service is recognizable throughout the world. Your bas-relief, however, is very different combined with the red cross.

It is an interesting sign for the Red Cross. I like it.

Lois Evensen said...

Yes, very different than the symbols for the Red Cross that we see here in the States. :)

I like the fine details of the work.

Randy said...

I agree with Lois, it is unusual but I like too.

The "supporters" look very serious about the business of the red cross.

A 'strong' sculptural emblem VP.

Amazing what a powerful symbol the red cross is that we all recognize it.

Birdman said...

Different? I'll say. A little more thought went into this then what you see around here.

No naked people on the red cross signs in my area.

That's rather surprising, I'm like Stefan, I don't think I've ever seen one like this!

Well, they look very healthy. The Red Cross must be doing a good job. :)

It is interesting to see this classical bas relief on a modern business.
