Title Swipe to Unluck

         Having its origin in biblical Israel, the crossing fingers gesture has been commonly used since early Christianity as a symbol of Christ’s cross to invoke protection against evil.

While losing its religious value, fingers crossed have lived throughout ages to contemporaneity as a symbol of luck, transcending and adapting to cultural shifts over time.

Can a symbol so strong maintain its value when an attempt to change form is made? Can a concept survive through physical evolution as well as it has survived the loss of religious severity due to progressive metabolization in popular culture?
