Without context, the first one makes more sense since a man can operate as a free agent while a hand cannot. However, it is sometimes appropriate to say a “hand comes out of the unknown” in some situations. For example, if the hand performs an act of help or service and the writer is trying to keep the identity of the helper hidden, it makes sense.

It all depends on the context. None of these are more or less supernatural than the other.
