Handprint pictographs, formed by either inking up one's hand and pressing it against a surface or else by placing one's hand on a surface and inking around it, are found all over the world. These pictographs are probably one of the earliest forms of printmaking. I used my own hand and my partner's and spattered the ink with a toothbrush to make the handprints above.
