Left Hand of an Apostle Albrecht Durer-the Apostle is Durer's brother, who gave up a promising career as an artist so he could work and pay Durer's way through school. Unfortunately, he was crippled by the heavy labor and was never able to take his turn at art school.
“Don't be ashamed to weep; 'tis right to grieve. Tears are only water, and flowers, trees, and fruit cannot grow without water. But there must be sunlight also. A wounded heart will heal in time, and when it does, the memory and love of our lost ones is sealed inside to comfort us.” ― Brian Jacques, Taggerung ::: photo credit ~ Albrecht Dürer
