Handy that Hand axe - Prehistoric Art

Another Hand axe, can you see the whole hand shape in this flint tool? I have demonstrated this glyph and its variants through various previous posts, a nice comparative example of this glyph can be seen towards the bottom of the second photo from Eolith Shows Dinosour Depiction?
 The hand axe was recovered from the Essex coast while trawling.

 Notice how both hand shapes have a pointy claw like nail feature.
