Helping hand

Awwww. Little kids' hands are so sweet. Not delicious sweet, they're actually kinda chewy. But just heart-meltingly human, we clasp the child's hand as we once clasped giant adult hands, forming links in a chain of continuity back to our ancient ancestors. This image captures the complex connection and functional roles that instinctively arise between adult and child, such as bonding, guidance, support, communication, protection, trust, and affection. A distinguishing feature of our species is our extremely long process of maturation, starting with several years of being small, weak, vulnerable, and utterly dependent on others for survivial.
