All Hands

Have developed a quiet infatuation with hands. Must be a result of spending time with Michelangelo’s David’s hands (see here). Isn’t  the first time I fell in love with. …  happened before during a sculpture class. The head I did then was pretty neat, but I got totally thrown when I tried to capture the model’s hands in clay. Rodin apparently  did a hand every day to keep in form. Good exercise !

Here goes my present hand- top-5 :
1. detail ‘Portrait of Edith” by Egon Schiele

2. a video by Geert van Mil. I tried to link to his site, but cannot find it any more. Geert – what happened?

3. Michelangelo’s David’s hands

5. Le Corbusier: Hand from Above

5. My own
