About "My Show of Hands"

Immediately below this entry is an image I've called "My Show of Hands". It's my little doffing of the hat to the Rt Rev Dr. Omed, who recently featured some hands at his blog. Below the image, I posed the question, "What do you see?"

It's a serious question, a sort of blogospheric reality check, if you will. I find myself curling my fingers in this form often - especially while watching the tube. I'm curious whether others will perceive the same form as I do.

For the moment, screen out the lovely mandala which serves as background. Screen out the fact that the hands are overexposed, or drenched by the flash. Focus on the negative space formed by the fingers.

What do you see?
