The Hand

ADDPMP688

A sculpture designed by Chilean artist Mario Irarrázabal and located in Punta del Este, Uruguay. La Mano (The Hand) depicts five human fingers partially emerging from sand and so also known as either Los Dedos (The Fingers), or Hombre emergiendo a la vida (Man Emerging into Life). It is made of concrete and plastic, reinforced with steel bars and metal mesh, and covered by a degradation-resistant solvent.

Since its completion in February 1982, The Hand has become a symbol for Punta del Este and one of Uruguay’s most recognizable landmarks.

Irarrázabal later made near or exact replicas of the sculpture in Madrid, Spain (1987), in the Atacama Desert, Chile, named the Mano del Desierto (1992), and in Venice, Italy (1995).
