Auguste Rodin Two Hands

Two hands is modeled and cast at an unknown date. Rodin was fascinated with hands and the ability they have to express feelings. Rodin secretary said "There are among the works of Rodin's hands, single small hands, which without belonging to a body, are alive. Hands that rise, irritated and in wrath; hands whose five bristling fingers seem to bark like the five jaws of a dog of Hell.". I chose this piece because I loved how expressive they are and how you can feel the emotion and passion through such simple gestures.
