Human Hand in Resting Pose on Brass Stand
This hand from our human skeleton SC-092 is articulated to demonstrate the naturally held position at rest and when walking. Humans evolved bipedal stance and, with few exceptions, such as climbing, do not use their hands for locomotion. Bipedal stance and opposable thumbs allow a wide range of tool use for hunting, gathering, artistry, balance, communication, and a myriad of other activities.
The hand is a complex structure that is a representation of an animal's evolutionary history, from the simple tetrapod (a four-limbed, five-fingered animal) to a more complex organism. The study of comparative primate hands can yield insight into many areas of investigation through many disciplines: from K-12 to upper level work in the fields of evolution, biology, locomotion, and physical anthropology.
