Married man's hands



Naively carved wood hands showing veins that look like vines or branches. I believe they're from the Midwest. I thought it was interesting that one hand shows a wedding ring. Perhaps these are the hands of someone in particular. Do the veins represent the family tree? The cuffs have a jagged edge and pinhole decoration. The backs of the hands are flat and undecorated.
