Sign advertising the Lakshmi video shop in Penang, with a rather incongruous Sacred Heart Jesus

Sacred Heart sign advertising the Lakshmi Video shop in George Town, Penang.

Kay adds:

“This sign somehow seems to sum up Penang’s ethnic diversity very well. You’ve got a Christian iconic figure, rather bizarrely advertising a shop named after the Hindu goddess of prosperity, in a largely Chinese city in an Islamic state. Confusing, but Penang’s people seem to rub along together well enough most of the time.
