His little hands stole my heart. His little feet ran away with it. - Anonymous
Our predecessors, P.P. Caproni and Brother, not only made reproductions of sculptures, they offered many other products and services. One of which was creating life and death casts to serve as study pieces for artists or keepsakes for families. The company molded the hands and feet of children and babies as well, and today, these small plaster casts continue to be gifted to new parents and grandparents and studied by budding artists.
See below for the adorable little hands and feet in the collection!
Child Hand on Panel - Item #477
You can also find these pieces in our Casts for Drawing collection which includes other life casts, masks, geometric shapes, and other popular study items.
If you want to try your hand at it, make your own life cast!
