"Insects and Hands" by William Kent (Amer., 1919-2012)
Slate Print, 1963, Ed. 15, 5-9/16" x 20", on cream laid japan paper, signed, dated and numbered in pencil. There are several prints which show the artist's hands tenderly touching or protectively cradling these delicate creatures. Aside from the beauty of their form, in these prints one can sense the artist's fascination and spiritual reverence for all living things.
