Olive Wood Praying Hands Large. These Praying Hands are hand carved in Bethlehem from Olive wood. The base measures 3 1/2″ across and they stand around 6 1/4″ tall and 2 1/2″ wide. Fully marked to show finger nails and joints, with the stand acting as ‘cuffs to the sleeves’, they are a beautiful reminder of the fact that we are called to ‘Pray without ceasing’. Please note that as each hand is made individually, each pair is completely different in the wood’s tone, colour and markings.
