Somewhat overlooked, I've always been fascinated by FIRE MARKS. A wealth of amazing iconic imagery for sure: they're also a tell piece of human nature. When makeshift fire brigades were more en vogue, each plate depicted a particular company that insured a building. The more money an insurance company had, the bigger the reward for snuffing out those pesky fires. With hands around a waterjug, it's only natural instinct for those fingers to work like divining rods to the nearest well of money.
