From time to time I wonder if there is something wrong with me when I design and create things like this. As a first try and basically a prototype, this came really well and gave me a hint on how to do my next much larger project that I was planing to do.
In my time I have met a lot of people that are struggling through life and working long hours and multiple jobs just to get by. If you look at them deeper you will see that their soul is tired and has been through a lot (maybe the title is too harsh but in some cases it is true) and their hands almost used up.
For this reason I have chosen to make the hand and frame from 80 years old reclaimed Fir which when finished with oil, has a nice golden color (frame representing the soul and hand of course-the hand of gold-hardworking). Frame splines are made from 80 years old reclaimed acacia and walnut.
The inside of this “sculpture” is plywood painted in dark walnut color with Ash veneer.
Pictures are taken from my phone and really bad lightning so sadly you cannot see the full effect.
Hope at least someone likes it.
