Quetzali Sign

Quetzali Sign

I am always amazed by the great quantity and quality of the signage in La Antigua Guatemala. Incredible that even though signs are regulated in Antigua, you can find so many different and artistic signs. Today’s sign, for instance, is a piece of wood known in Guatemalan Spanish a lepa, which is a slice of the tree which still has bark, on it the Quetzali sign was carved and finally painted. Simple and yet so distinctive, in my opinion. What do you think?
