    I love this find...or did you create it? tones, lines, and clear definition is masterfully captured. The hands remind me of the old cartoon AESOP'S Fables, which were on with the Mr Magoo Show

    The central image would make a really nice assemblage for the wall...the textural wood outer part, a thin sheet of corten steel for the background and support, then the hand sculpted out of a dark earth and straw mixture (like adobe) with concrete adhesive, roplex, or Liquitex gel medium (for bonding) or a table top, or pedestal version, on a stepped base or 4 to 6 old terra cotta bricks first, then stepped in to a half inch thick slab of blackened steel, the the piece. I think it would look great as a sculpture or wall piece. It's a great looking image also just the way you have it. The textures are great! I especially like the texture of the wood and the hands, and I love the elongation and the textural structure of the hands. COOL PIECE
