Ethiopian Food - available

- by Melissa Wotherspoon

This week's theme: The Human Hand

Four fingers and an opposable thumb. A remarkable, capable combination. Our hands allow us to do so very much. They are both utilitarian and expressive. Hands are beautiful, dexterous; they can create and destroy. They are, inextricably, human.

-Melissa Morton


Art: Ethiopian Food - available by Artist Melissa Wotherspoon
In today's fast food culture, we miss out on certain pleasures in life: becoming closer physically and emotionally with those who are important in our lives. I've added an extra layer of meaning to this piece; the four hands represent four different ethnic backgrounds, and my hope for greater tolerance in this turbulent world.
