A Chinese proverb says: "A helping hand makes a happy heart." Hands are expressions of ourselves, measures by which we may be understood. Stretched out in acceptance or clenched in defiance, hands communicate our emotions. Weathered in the fields or immaculately manicured in the salon, they also reflect our lifestyles. Hands caress, pray, fight, dance, labor, greet, hug, hold, gesture, and help. Looking at hands across Asia is a journey of discovery, of stories untold.
