The Copper Hand is our “hand we have been dealt”, out fate and our potential. The lines on the hand represent our life. Here we are presented with a meditation on how to take the fate we have been given and to transform it. The copper tub is a symbol of baptism. In ancient Rome, the “hand of the mysteries” was a bronze hand representing a person’s life in the mysteries.

"The set of lithographs were drawn on metal plates with litho crayon. Each sheet of paper had an archival size applied in the area of the leaf and was then hand leafed. Then each sheet was put through the press and the lithograph was printed on top of the leaf. I did the leafing at my studio. The famous printer Maurice Sanchez who is James Rosenquist's printer did the prints on Rosenquist's press. It was an enormous undertaking which proved very difficult. Maurice had to ink the plates with a leather roller/ they were a considerable challenge due to their size and complex process."
