New Creepy Hand Sculpture Watches Over Wellington, New Zealand
A dystopian sculpture is looming over Wellington, New Zealand, casting an ominous shadow. On Monday, a giant hand with a face was installed on top of Wellington’s City Gallery, carried in by a helicopter. Created in 2016 by Ronnie van Hout, the artwork was originally located on top of the Christchurch Art Gallery. Now, it’s on loan to Wellington (definitely not because Christchurch was trying to get rid of it). The sculpture is 16 feet high, weighs a whopping 880 pounds, and the relocation operation cost $47,000.
