"Bad Hand" is a blueprint depiction of the Venus De Milo's hand holding apple, deliberately not re-attached because it proves that the Venus belongs to the Hellenistic era of Greek Art and at the time of its discovery would have been less valuable. It's less rendered form hints at the veracity of the statue's fame.
