The source image for this is actually just a hand of a girl who got up in front of my camera while I was trying to take a picture of somebody else. I liked the way her fingers looked, so I used them in this piece. I moved her thumb around to the other side of her and mirrored the result in several ways. My first attempts looks rather crab-like, but I think that's hard to see now. The image is supposed to represent a unity and merging of races. Also, where the two hands merge in each half, a shadow of an hourglass can be seen, showing that this unity has been progressing and will progress through time.
