HIGH FIVE

 We have personally been long time collectors of hands,  which make for interesting design accessories. On our buying trips throughout Europe we are always on the hunt to find more.
Available in our shop, many clients have also found these treasures a must for their home!







Most were originally from statues of saints in churches throughout Europe












Plaster molds are also used for artists to practice sketching the human form





 Reticulated wooden forms are commonly used to study the human form for artists to sketch







Asian cultures also used the hand for spiritual guidance






THE HAND

NATURES BEAUTY
