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.

Thereís a fancy restaurant in San Antonio that ran an ad campaign with a similar looking primitive figure holding a giant fork and the phrase ďhunt no moreĒ.  If youíre going for the look of a cave painting, proportions donít have to really be realistic. I still think itís 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.
