Handprints are one of the earliest artistic expression human used on earth.

From 'Wikipedia - Cave Painting'
[...]The oldest cave is that of Chauvet, and is 32,000 years old.

The most common themes in cave paintings are large wild animals, such as bison, horses, aurochs, and deer, and tracings of human hands as well as abstract patterns, called Macaroni by Breuil. Drawings of humans are rare and are usually schematic rather than the more naturalistic animal subjects. Cave art may have begun in the Aurignacian period (Hohle Fels, Germany), but reached its apogee in the late Magdalenian (Lascaux, France).
