Sling logo?
Dec 1st, 2019 at 4:02am
 
Recently we went to a restaurant here in Helsinki which is Hawaiian inspired. Amazingly good food I have to say but what was particularly investing was their logo. I haven't been able to confirm it but... that's a sling right? Definitely not a spear, unlikely to be an oar or club, it must be a sling! What do you guys think?

Not sponsored by the way, but, if you are in Helsinki sometime, I recommend them Cheesy

Possibly.  Although because the ends appear to protruded past the hands, I would guess a short staff or stick weapon.  Something like the Japanese jo.  Could be a sling though.  A very interesting image.

Considering that it’s a restaurant, I was thinking it might be a spoon.

There’s a fancy restaurant in San Antonio that ran an ad campaign with a similar looking primitive figure holding a giant fork and the phrase “hunt no more”.  If you’re going for the look of a cave painting, proportions don’t have to really be realistic. I still think it’s a spoon Smiley

    It could be a sling but it could be a lot of other things too.

Yeah it's very hard to tell what it is. The fact that it's not entirely straight makes it seem more like a sling but yeah.

That’s just the Star Wars version of an Indian war club:
