The Hand of Glory

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

You know, I usually try to avoid drawing hands... Anyway, according to old European tales, the Hand of Glory was the pickled hand of a man who had been hanged. It is said that if one was presented the Hand while it held a candle made from the finger of an unborn child, one would be rendered motionless. Sick as it sounds, burglars would murder pregnant women in order to 'harvest' the fingers of the child inside the woman's womb. Ick. I'd have to say that this is probably the most twisted and sinister thing that I have ever drawn.
