These timely ear adornments are based on the sign outside well known local eatery Pope Joan and the directional crosses, 1.5m apart, found on the pavements outside many cafes in Melbourne in mid-late 2020.
"I created these from a photo of the crosses outside @popejoan...@tinyhavic told me that they reminded her of plague crosses worn to protect people from the bubonic plague and they kind of do look like a contemporary version of that."
