“Amega Alarms”, Oxford: worshipping hands

“Amega Alarms” burglar alarm, Oxford • These severed, supplicating hands look like they’re worshipping rays of light, or catching a shower, but actually they’re cradling a faded letter A. It belongs to Oxford-based Amega, a 25-year-old firm whose more recent boxes, featuring the same design, can be seen here. I’ve also come across handless sounders bearing the very similar name Amiga – as in the legendary 1980s computer – but I assume that’s a completely different company. • Spotted: Park End Street, Oxford, Oxfordshire, OX1, England, 2012 • Politics: In the Labour constituency of Oxford East
