Their usage is prohibited in a football match if it isn’t “the hand of God”, as it was in the world championship in 1986. Of course the origin of “the hand of God” dates back to religion, where it was a very traditional and wide spread religious symbol for the power of God and therefore ornaments numerous church windows and paintings. Many profane artists also concentrated on the hand, such as Albrecht Dürer in his image “best hands”.

The Danish company Hay offers such a model of the hand with its “Wooden Hand”, which offers further usage possibilities. Whether as pen holder, as storage of rings and other jewelry or simply as decorative object in the living or working room – the functions of Wooden Hand are versatile.
The Wooden Hand is made out of high quality Samak wood and available in three different sizes. Also the pendant “Wooden Feet” is available suiting the Wooden Hand.
