Hand of Glory

8×10″ pen and ink illustration on paper.

Part of an Inktober series, this is my Hand of Glory, in all its glory. The Hand of Glory itself is a magical item, made from the hand of a hanged man and a candle from the fat of the corpse. Once the candle is placed on the handle, like a candelabra, and lit, the bearer is granted with extraordinary powers. I like to think they are gifted with the ability to see what is hidden and unlock any door or obstacle in their way.
