The hands have been universally regarded as the primary focal point of human culture as shown in primitive rock art.
The Bradshaw Foundation has a collection of primitive Hand paintings shown at this link It might be of interest to contemplate these images of the hand as we in turn contemplate our own hands.

    Reminiscent of some of the designs I've seen in the American Southwest. Too bad we don't know what they had in mind when they drew that hand. A hand held palm out in some cultures meant "peace," since it showed that there were no weapons being held.
