Macro Monday - Hand Print

I dont know how this has been formed, but I noticed this hand print on one of the pillars outside Melbourne Museum last week.  However it was done I was drawn to the similarity with the hand prints that are seen in ancient cave paintings and more recent Aboriginal stencils here in Australia.

I doubt these have the same level of significance, but there is a clear link between them.

You can find more macro shots at the logically named Marco Monday.

You can find the latest post to my other blog by clicking the Paying Ready Attention image on the RHS of the screens.

Enjoy the close ups.

that's very cool - maybe someday a civilization far into the future will find this 'relic'. :)

That is a cool shot for the day, Stewart!! Wonder what people in that far off future will think!!

Good eye for seeing this. We often overlook interesting places,persons and things that are often around us.

You have a sharp eye Stewart. As for the significance - true. Although it's all a matter of time and perspective. That hand was a lot more significant for that owner :-)

I guess people have always wanted to leave their mark. Now we blog ;>)
