A couple of Silver-Haired Old Ladies in the National Portrait Gallery (Tudor section):
SHOL 1: Look at the hands, they're very important. They're the most detailed part, can you see?
SHOL 2: Yes they're... aren't they big.
SHOL 1: Hands were very important then. Can you see the detail?
SHOL 2: Look at that ring.
SHOL 1: His seal, that's his seal. I love the way he clasps his together.
SHOL 2: Thin fingers.
SHOL 1: They intertwine don't they? Yes. As though he's praying.
SHOL 2: Why is he praying?
SHOL 1: He isn't.
SHOL 2: He could be.
SHOL 1: Yes. But he isn't. One wouldn't pray whilst having one's portrait painted.
SHOL 2: He could be pretending.
SHOL 1: Let's move on. Oh, now this is Henry VII. (PAUSE) Look at the hands...
That's the best thing about art galleries: sod the paintings, look at the people.
Or the hands.
