After a few murals part of his “Road Trip” series comes “Hope” also painted by MTO in New Orleans on the corner 7th st. & South Saratoga.
The new piece was sponsored by Tami HILLS and shows the image of two hands with fingers crossed.
To cross one’s fingers was a hand gesture commonly used to implore God for protection, as well as to wish for good luck. The gesture is referred to by the common expression “keeping one’s fingers crossed” or just “fingers crossed” and has also been historically used in order to allow believers to recognize one another during times of persecution.
MTO is in other words wishing us good luck in this new year.
