Halo Halo

These semaphore saints were originally made in 2004 for an art exhibition in York Minster. The artist is Terry Hammill and he made them headless to show that it is possible to communicate without words if you are able to interpret symbols. He is also making the point that the Minster is full of symbols if you know what to look for.
If your semaphore is a little rusty, or like mine non existent, highlight between brackets to see the word these saints are signing with their halos (christ)

  1. You find the most interesting stuff! Either that, or York is just overloaded.
