What is the significance of a handprint?
A handprint is an impression left by the hand on a surface. Handprints have been used in a variety of ways throughout history, including as a form of communication, as a record of work, or as a signature.
Today, hand prints are often used as a decorative element or as a symbol of solidarity.
They can also be seen as a way to make a personal connection with an object or place. In many cultures, the handprint is seen as a sign of good luck!
For example, some people believe that if you touch someone with your left hand and then make a fist, their bad luck will rub off on you.
Others believe that placing your handprint on a baby’s forehead will protect them from evil spirits.
Whatever the beliefs or traditions associated with it, the handprint remains an important part of human history.
