This is beautiful, Seth and somewhat remeniscent of a pompeii cast. It seems like a lucky symbol to me, however (unlike those who got caught out in Pompeii). There is also something quite shrine-like to it.

A masterly piece.

Wonderful piece. The hand carries so much meaning. I've written a number of poems in which the hand figures.

cool hand. I like the way you mounted this one. and yes there is something shrinelike about it! I think the blemish on her hand has some religious meaning??? cant recall exactly. will have to look into that.

This is one of my favorites, strength and endurance are the words I needed to hear this morning.

Oh my goodness - this is just fabulous. I love the crackled, aged, rustiness of it all! When I looked at your ETSY shop and saw it's size, I'm really amazed at such detail in so small a piece. Very nice!

Makes me think of something that would be dug up in some archeological dig. Wonderful.

Each of your hand works are so unique in their special ways. Especially love the amazing base- just super!

Great hands, especially all together on facebook. Everybody should see them. What about a poster?

This is lovely. I can't help but think stigmata with the marking in the palm. It lends layers of meaning to unravel while viewing. I enjoy the aura of mystery around this work.

I hope you are doing well. are you going to ARtfest? Please go to Artfest and take Ellsworth's workshop with me. We'll goof on other people. Or, I'll be quiet. Whatever you feel comfortable with.
