Modern Hieroglyphs

It may seem odd that there are modern hieroglyphs, but it is true.  We are so accustomed to them - we don’t realize that they exist in today’s world.  Signs such as the men and women’s bathroom signs come so naturally to us, it’s just an everyday sighting.  

Non-smoking signs is another good example of modern hieroglyphs.  We see them everywhere; they are used so often.  These are other signs we see, but normally in a computer lab, library, or even a store.  

A fun example of an usual hieroglyph, which isn’t really used in everyday life, but more as a moral reminder is shown in the image above.  The monkeys are a visual reminder of simple morals.
