Handsome


The story goes that Nodens was once the leader of the Gods. However, he lost his hand when wounded in battle. Gofannon, the Divine-Smith, made a new hand for Nodens out of silver, after which he was known as the Silver-Handed. Ultimately he became the Celtic God of Health and Healing.

I love these hand assemblages with their circular layers of rustiness. They are like unearthed relics of past times.
