14 Show Me Your Hands

Show Me Your Hands

Posted on August 17, 2011 by team

Sometimes a man’s hands can tell you more than his portrait… In this post you’ll see many wonderful hands: those that played 5.000 concerts, dug up 150 tons of potatoes, conducted 20.000 operations and some others.

The hands that drew 40.000 caricatures.

Boris Yefimov, a caricaturist, died at the age of 108 years old.

“I had a chance to shake many good hands in my lifetime. I clearly remember the handshake with Mussolini. He received the Soviet delegation of 11 people and greeted everyone in person. Mussolini was gorgeous, spectacular – in a white civilian suit and two-tone shoes. A real dandy! Actually, I happened to deal with many great people. I saw and heard Lenin, I bade last farewell to Lunacharsky. I once talked to Stalin on the phone and dined with Tito…”

The hands that dissected more than 8.000 bodies.

Joseph Laskavy, a pathologist, 68 years old.

“According to a stereotype, a pathologist comes to work in the morning, drinks half a glass of public alcohol, rolls up sleeves, takes a large knife and guts corpses all day long. But in fact, our main work is the study of micro-preparations taken by a surgeon from a piece of a corpse in order to determine the disease. Unfortunately, the stereotype persists because everybody watches a lot of American movies. There is always that little Jew in glasses to whom a detective comes with a small piece of coal in a hand and who establishes that this coal was in the past a white man of 32 years old who ate chicken 2 hours before his death. Or here’s another image: a husky guy with hairy arms and a hairy chest. I successfully combine these both characters: on the one hand, I’m a Jew wearing glasses, and on the other, I have hairy arms. ”
