The overall shape of this piece refers to the form of a grasping hand. “The grasp reflex appears at birth and persists until five or six months of age. When an object is placed in the infant’s hand and strokes their palm, the fingers will close and they will grasp it. The reverse motion can be induced by stroking the back or side of the hand.”
