Taken from Le Petit Albert, an 18th-century grimoire of natural and cabalistic magic, a 'hand of glory', is described as the dried or pickled left hand from a man who has been hanged holding a candle made from the fat of the same man. Magic properties are attributed to the candle, such as the ability to render motionless any person to whom the candle is presented to. While it cannot be guaranteed that this will be the case with this candle, it can be that this will make an excellent halloween decoration.The candle is handcast in parafin wax, with wicks in the fingers, and is unscented. The wooden base as shown is included.
