Hands of Josephus
Hands of Josephus is an altered book, created from a broken down copy of Flavius Josepus ‘Twenty books of The Jewish Antiquities, The Life of Josephus and the The Jewish Wars’. Each page, cut in the shape of hands is sewn on multiple beaded cords, then attached to wire hand forms, which are encrusted with beads. Josephus, a 1st century Jewish historian and apologist who survived and recorded the Destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD. His works give an important insight into first-century Judaism, while raising questions about who owns history. The hand of the victor it seems, always controls the every version of truth.
There are five books in this series, all created from the original two volume set of books.
