Homunculus and the pleasure of using hands

Many years ago, I came across the concept of the "Homunculus", in terms of a little sculpture which's body parts are in size proportional to the cortex section controlling it. After a day of course preparation, we were sitting together with Ali Fahrhoomand in a German beer bar in Lan Kwai Fang, elaborating on the pleasures of painting, when this came back to my mind. And somehow, looking at this, it seems plausible that doing things with hands must be a very important part of wellbeing. I remember an old colleague of mine, who literally fell into some kind of trance when repairing mechanical watches. He always said, that it makes him "happy". It should be an interesting experiment to priories body parts in terms of use, care and stimulus according to the Homunculus. Have not figured out how to do that completely, but for sure the hands are the one to start with.
