Cocteau Cocktail

While sitting in a booth in a pub, I'm afraid that I became quite enamored with the fixture holding the globe light that illuminated our table. The small hand jutting out from the fixture reminded me of the living fixtures that lined the walls of Cocteau's Beauty and the Beast...only, the smaller size of this tiny fist gave an even more fairy tale air to it. My rendering, however, due entirely to the shadows that fell across it, looks more like the fist of some mad scientist from some other world, as drawn by Jack Kirby.
