Michaelangelo

One of the greatest artists in history and famous for the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in The Vatican, Michaelangelo knew a thing or two about hands (left ones that is.) The fingers touching is one of the most famous part of any work of art ever made (up there with The Mona Lisa's unforgettable smile.)
