tribal origins series-
of course one hand was just not enough, so I did 2 on this one, I just can't get a great photo of both at the same time
after hearing about various tribal art traditions, I started wondering about tribal roots. The search took me way back to find some tribal origins - back 15,000 to 30,000 years to cave paintings in France.
Hands were a feature of cave paintings from around the world at various times, one theory being that they were a signature of the artist, but most definitely a statement of "I was here!"
