Hands of Protection


While deep in my 23 obsession, I had read in the Principia Discordia that the Erisians had adopted the Winston Churchill V-for-Victory sign as their own twenty-three hand-signal (two fingers up and three fingers down). Later, of course, that got co-opted by the hippies as a peace sign. Well, I wanted my own 23 signal free from any association to peace or victory so I closed the fingers or, as often, crossed them in the hope of creating something unique and still recognizable.

This image, by the way, was made on the old Sugar Turbine - the copier that Ed rescued, I repaired and we all used to print the 23 Press books.
