My hotel in Milan was located few meters far from the central station. I was in the reception when I pay attention in this carpet, that was used in the whole building. It is visible the world "jew" with the letters mixed. Why these 3 letters were used only ? Can you say this is only a coincidence ?
Meu hotel em Milão estava localizado bem perto da estação central. Enquanto estava na recepção reparei no carpet e vi que curiosamente aparecia a palavra "Judeu" escrita em inglês mesclada aos caracteres. Me pergunto por que apareceriam apenas estas 3 letras e não outras ? Isto seria apenas uma coincidência ?

Before I read your note when I saw this photos in the thumbnail, it reminded me my primary school years. I started using eye glasses in first grade and every six months I was going for checkup for an eye doctor. I suppose to read the letter E's on the board going smaller and smaller to the bottom line and I need to tell if it was facing left-right-up or bottom and most of the time they all looked like triangles to me. Going to a doctor was a nightmare at those years. Now I have eyesight of 8 (hyperopia with astigmatism) Still I do not like reading the board :).

I also see a few occurrences of "we". I love the blue & yellow, the colors of Fenerbahçe!

Hi Jorge, maybe someone sees what wants to see? I see here only TWO letters in different positions - h, J, Y and w, E. And it is indeed similar to the boards by eye doctors. But an interesting observation and your title catches the attencion.

En realidad, una composiciòn gràfica intrigante que nos hace reflexionar. Me atrevo a esperar que no hay pensiamento racista detràs de este dibujo.
Gracias por compartir.
