I’m taking a wild guess that this means something in sign language. Anyone know?

Either way, I’m kinda really in love with this. It’s at 4th and Spring Garden streets in Northern Liberties.

    If it is ASL (American Sign Language), which I presume it is, then it appears to be the letter “F”.

    It looks like the letter F, but don’t know its context.

    The buddha hand gesture, maybe for:

    Jnana Mudra
    Teaching. The hand is held at chest level and the thumb and index finger again form the Wheel of Law.

    Vitarka Mudra
    Intellectual argument, discussion. The circle formed by the thumb and index finger is the sign of the Wheel of Law.

    There’s one of these near the 46th st stop on the El, too. It’s been there for a few months.

    There’s also one near 36th and Market.I always thought the hand was holding something between its fingers
