From the series Ripples. A horse's hard hoof, a cat's skillful claw, a bear's heavy padded paw and the hand of man are shown to be similar in some way.But a man's hand is shown to be different in a very important way the way he can use his thumb. An x-ray view of hand bones shows the basis for man's flexibility of movement. Pictures of many hands appear to make things man needs to live,to make things beautiful to see and hear, and to do things children need and want to do. Finally,in a classroom participation game, hands"talk" without a word.
