Zuko's plaster cast

Zuko made this plaster cast of his right hand when he was a child.

This plaster cast is a clay print of Zuko's right hand that the young prince made when he was a child.[1]


When Zuko was a child, his mother helped him make this plaster cast of his hand. The cast held great meaning to Zuko, as it represented the happy times he had spent with his family on Ember Island.[2]

When Zuko visited his family's old beach house years later, he found the plaster cast and compared how the size of his hand had changed from when he was young. He later sat on the porch of the house, contemplating the object before setting it aside, and abandoning the scene at Azula's urging.[1]
