10.2 th…Post…ThumbPrint

This is the left thumb of the bronze arm as seen in 10.0th…Post…ThumbPrint. Here it looks a little different, the lighting is different and the photo shot is perpendicular to the thumb pad.  The patina seems very heavy in this view.

If you look closely at the lower edge, one can see the shiny area where the prints had been  worn off.  The very center of the pad looks a little puffy and this area shows better in a side view.  The pad does have a little scarring.    Looking at the area between 6:00 and 7:00 one can see a slight indentation, sort of like two footprints left in the sand on a beach.  Now this is  a very slight scar.  If I enlarge the photo to see it clearly it will take too long to download.  It is there and I have enlargements of in in my files.

However, I think this scaring might be  beneficial to my research.   In my posting   10.4th…Post…ThumbPrint and looking to the far right, the very last portion of the print one can see a  the dark area.  An enlargement of this area looks like two foot prints left in the sand on a beach. When I attempt to align these two different sets of footprints (in the sand) in the same direction the ridges of both thumbprints flow in the same direction.  This is a plus for me.

When I first examined the print in the paint I thought that it would have to be a thumb because of the location.  I also thought it had an orientation of  12:00 / 6:00.  However on recreation of  someone leaving a print and how it would appear I an now certain it was made with the thumb pointing at 2:00.    The print would look just the same but the ridges would flow in a different direction.   Thumb was pointed in a 2:00 direction.

Lets move on…we can come back….dan
