Unique Artistic Shop Signs
Description:
The goal of this category is to waymark Unique Artistic Shop Signs where the name or kind of the shop is depicted in a symbolic and artistic way.

We are NOT looking for ordinary everyday shop signs, which can be found in any city around the world many times. See the expanded Description for details and examples.
Expanded Description:
The goal of this category is to waymark unique artistic shop signs where the name or kind of the shop is depicted in a symbolic and artistic way. The shop sign should not be attached directly to the wall, but extend into the street. The requested signs are made usually from metal, wood or plastic.

We are accepting all kind of shops and business, i.e. hair cutter, butcher shops and restaurants, as long as they have a unique store sign. Please note: Pictorial Pub Signs have their own category and should be posted there. The same applies to Neon Signs and Artistic Neon Lights. They also have their own categories.

We are not looking for ordinary everyday shop signs, which can be found in any city around the world many times. What the category will not accept are simple signs that only display the name of the shop or business. The dominant element of the sign must be artifical. i.e. the sign should be a picture/symbol with incidental lettering. NOT a sign that is predominantly lettering with a token picture/symbol on it.

Narrative Description
The description should have two elements.

FIRST, a description of the sign itself noting especially the artistic, graphic and symbolic elements that make this sign unique. This is an art category, so please describe the art and how it relates to the community. Why was this specific art included on the shop sign?

SECOND, at least a few sentences or paragraph about the shop itself. What kind of shop is it? Is there a special reason for its name?

(If the descriptive text provided for the waymark includes text copied in whole or in part from another web site or sites, you MUST provide a "source" reference in the description to give credit to the source from which the text was obtained.)
