Dear Ginny, I recently did a unit on hands in art. Our final project, (2nd
grade) was for each student to make a plaster craft cast of one of their
hands and embellish it artistically. I also discussed Hindu sculpture and
buddist Mudras. However this was very difficult to research. I found a
text which described some hand positions and what they meant, but the
source did not have pictures so I wonder if you know of any more complete
references for this subject. Thanks, Diane L.
