Description

Arm. Arm is dark brown with traces of green patina. Bronze is a left arm and shoulder with a hand clenched to hold a missing object. There is a channel running along the inner side of the arm. At the shoulder is a projection with a small round hole through it for attachment to a figure. Engraved lines at the elbow perhaps indicate a sleeve.
