Hands on Headstones

Here's a weird hobby. The proprietor of this website is collecting data on hands found on headstones.

Hands are nineteenth and early twentieth century icons. They particularly interest me because they allow an immediately date range for a headstone. If only because no one else has found them peculiar enough to study, I decided to do an anthropological analysis.
