This one is about the intimacy that does (or more often doesn't) go along with male friendships. There's a complex etiquitte to hugs and handshakes between male friends, apparently determined by how it's been since you saw them last or expect to see them again. I guess this means I won't get a last manly hug from any friend who dies unexpectedly. Oh well. It's still nice to know that they're there. Good friends make life bearable. For a similar - but not - take on this issue, check this out. This piece was bought by the proprietors of the Hand of Law gallery.
