Lifesize resin hand of glory 

Ahand of glory is the dried hand of a hanged man, if the person was hanged for murder it was the hand that “did the deed” 

Old European beliefs attribute great powers to a Hand of Glory combined with a candle made from fat from the corpse of the same malefactor who died on the gallows. The candle so made, lighted, and placed (as if in a candlestick) in the Hand of Glory would have rendered motionless all persons to whom it was presented.
