Plate 17: Surgical Dissection of the Wrist and Hand from Surgical Anatomy by Joseph Maclise.
"The hand is typical of the mind. It is the material symbol of the immaterial spirit, It is the prime agent of the will; and it is that instrument by which the human intellect manifests its presence in creation. The human hand has a language of its own. While the tongue demonstrates the thought through the word, the hand realizes and renders visible the thought through the work."
