The Praying Hands by AmBr0 The Praying Hands by AmBr0
One Albrecht Dürer's large number of preparatory drawings, for his paintings and engravings. the Betende Hände (English: Praying Hands, c. 1508 Albertina, Vienna), a study for an apostle in the Heller altarpiece.

I really enjoyed this hands study, simple and skillful but beautiful at the same time, transmiting a great sense of peacefulness and hope as well.

This is so powerful... I can't even start to define how beautiful it is!!! :faint:
This might be a religious gesture, but I'm not a religious person, so that's now why I like this!!!

This piece... I believe that it's one of your best (from what I've seen of your gallery)! It's so realistic... The veins on the hand are so visible... I love this! :heart:
