on the way to the library in my hometown, i walk past this house. and then recognize the sign. the hands: they are symbols of luck. Hamsa, they are called. here is more about them: Hamsa.
and more findings: in the library, they had "I am Legend" - the original book. it was written 1954 by Richard Matheson. i just googled it, the book is the base for 3 film adaptations: "The Last Man on Earth" (1964), Omega Man (1971), and "I Am Legend" (2007). now i am curious for it. and funny, the cover of this edition is the film poster, and in the copyright note, it says "copyright 1995". and then, a page later, it says "copyright acknowledgment 1954".
