With over 500 teabags, the hand weighs in at 3.25 lbs.
Created about 9 years ago, the hand was constructed using teabags, hot glue and pva glue. The project was part of my beginning 3D class assignment to find an object/unit that could be used to create a hand structure. I chose teabags and what I thought was a Buddhist mudra hand symbol, but I was off by a finger. It should have been the index finger touching the thumb.
It still resides on a shelf further cluttering the studio, but this was a nice opportunity to document a past creation.
