Hand bones

In between various life stuff I have managed to get in some sculpture this week, and I think this one has potential to be quite cool.

I've been making a hand.  Eventually this will have the veins and arteries, and possibly some of the nerve fibers.  It will be like an anatomical specimen.





The bones are made from paper wrapped around a piece of wire, which joins the different bones together and lets me bend the fingers, and they're more or less life-size.  Now I have to do the wrist bones, then the radius and ulna.  To be honest with you, I'm not really looking forward to the wrist bones.
