I love assemblage art, but don't do too much of it. I purchased this hand years ago at a yard sale and it has always spoken to me, but it never would tell me what I was to do with it. My son recently hurt his hand really badly while he was in Korea. So I call this piece Gaudy, Painful & Scary. I am glad the hand finally told me what it wanted to be.
My son is back in the USA; his hand is fine and I'm more creative.
