I think that these hands were an ancient god’s hands. I think that the god has been buried underground for so long, only the hands show now. I think that in a few hundred years, the whole statue will be buried under the earth. The thing that the god is holding is probably a thing that the god uses to channel his power. It could be like a wand or something. I think that this god is the god of the underworld because he is buried beneath the ground. I think that an ancient civilization buried it.
