When I post china I stuff the sides of the box with newspaper as it would be too expensive to use white paper which I use to wrap the article

You should see my hands afterwardsbut I do have a good wash and cream when I am done

Oh My..........Hands.

Is that so bad?

I do look after my hands, they feed me and my family.

I didn't think for a second whenever I see not so pretty hands that their are ugly

I think, this is a hard working hands.

They create most unforgeable masterpieces that stay's in history

for centuries.

Where this is a jewellery or monuments, fine china or a painting.

Sometimes we don't even know the name of a person who's hands

create a beauty that we treasure or simply enjoying see it in many

places around the world.

 

This hands build the best of this world.

 

I solute you "Dirty Hands" !!!

"Well-used" hands are indeed beautiful in their own way - but the initial reaction to seeing hands which appear "dirty" is often distaste. We are so accustomed to seeing hands of "hand-models" used in advertisements that it is slightly shocking to see grime or stains or calluses - and yet, most artist's hands are indeed grimy and/or stained and/or callused.

 

Even though it does appear that the hands are a bit grimy, it could also be a function of the post-production of the photograph - over-sharpened, heightened contrast, increased saturation levels - that make it look the way it does?

This reminds me of the story about "The Praying Hands". The dedication of one man, in providing for his family. For years he toiled, also made beautiful things to sell, but sadly his hands were damaged ,scarred and stained , but many people bought his creations, so his brother decided to sketch the hands (of the toiling brother) in order to honour him for his unselfish sacrifices for the family.

 

Even to this day, "The Praying Hands" are depicted on cards, paintings, etc.

Thanks for educating us, meeks - I have often wondered whose hands are in the "praying hands" pictures! Now, if we only knew his name ...

Apparently, the hands depicted, are the hands of Albert Durer, sketched by his brother.
