Resumo

The symbol of the red hand is used by most institutions in Northern Ireland including our own Queen’s University Belfast. This image (fig.1) was made in 1950‘s to encourage visitors to Northern Ireland — the location of our school of architecture at Queen’s University Belfast. The illustration refers to the source of this image — a mythological story concerning a boat race to the island involving two competing chie7ains. Simply put, first to touch dry land would acquire ownership of the island. One of the chieftains senses he is behind in the race and therefore cuts oð one of his hands, throws it forward onto the shore becoming in the act the first to touch terra firma. He gains possession and the nickname Red Hand Larry.
