Hands

"Hands can convey so much - They can beg or refuse, take or give, be open or clenched, show content or anxiety. They can be young or old, beautiful or deformed. Throughout the history of sculpture and painting one can find that artists have shown through the hands the feelings they wished to represent."

- Henry Moore quoted in 'The Artist's Hands', Raymond Spencer Company for the Henry Moore Foundation, Much Hadham, 1980
