As per Wikipedia; "Irarrázabal used the human figure to express emotions like injustice, loneliness, sorrow and torture. Its exaggerated size is said to emphasize human vulnerability and helplessness."

2. Monument to the Drowned
This was first giant hand made by Mario Irarrázabal. On its completion in 1982 Irarrázabal gained worldwide acclaim and made 3 more giant hands including the most famous Hand of Desert (Mano del Desierto) in the Atacama Desert, Chile.

La Mano (The Hand) aka Monumento al Ahogado (Meaning: Monument to the Drowned) is a sculpture of five fingers partially submerged in sand, located at Brava Beach, Punta del Este, Uruguay. The sculpture is made of concrete and plastic with reinforced steel bars, metal mesh, and a degradation-resistant solvent covering the plastic on the outside.

5. The Awakening
The Awakening is a huge artworks depicting a 22 meters long (72 ft) giant embedded in the ground trying to get out.

As per Wikipedia;
"The statue consists of five separate aluminum pieces buried in the ground, giving the impression of a panicked giant trying to pull himself to the surface. The left hand and right foot barely protrude, while the bent left leg and knee jut into the air. The 17-foot right arm and hand reach farther out of the ground, and the bearded face, with the mouth in mid-scream, struggles to emerge from the surrounding earth."

The sculpture unveiled in 1980 is creative work of American artist J. Seward Johnson, Jr. and was originally installed at Hains Point in East Potomac Park, Washington, D.C. In 2009 it was relocated to the present location at National Harbor, Prince George's County, Maryland, just outside the District of Columbia, where it is installed on a specially built beach along the Potomac River.

Because of its huge hand, which is distinctly separate from giant's body, the sculpture has been included in this "Giant Arms Around The World" collection.

11. The Hand, Parque Juan Carlos I, Madrid, Spain
This sculpture made in 1987 was the second giant hand made by Mario Irarrázabal. It is similar to his original sculpture in Punta del Este, Uruguay and shows five fingers partially submerged in the ground.

12. The Hand, Venice, Italy
This is 4th and last giant hand by Mario  Irarrázabal.  was originally installed at the Riva Ca' Di Dio, Castello, for the Venice Biennale in 1995. This sculpture has four stretched out fingers with thumb resting on the ground. Tired tourists often used the thumb as a bench.

Image from Panoramio is by AnnaJolanta 1

The sculpture remained at Riva Ca' Di Dio, at least till November 25, 2007 (Source: Flickr Image) and at some stage thereafter, it was relocated to a parking lot in Marghera, mainland Venice, where it lies neglected without any maintenance. From Google Street View (see below) it looks that it is in shambles and is barely noticeable to passersby. It is understood that the authorities are planning to renovate it and relocate again somewhere else. Source: (pdf file in Italian) (English  Translation).

13. Giant Hands of Chandigarh, India

Le Corbusier, famous Swiss-French architect, urban planner and one of the pioneers of modern architecture was very enamoured with "Open Hand" symbol. One of his most famous project was the planned city of Chandigarh, India and the city authorities adopted the "Open Hand" as the emblem/symbol of the of Chandigarh. There are several Giant Open Hands scattered in and around Chandigarh. Here are three larger ones.

13.1 Open Hand Monument, Chandigarh
This Open Hand Monument was designed by Le Corbusier himself and is largest of his many Open Hand sculptures. It symbolizes "the hand to give and the hand to take; peace and prosperity, and the unity of mankind".

The Monument located in the Capitol complex of Chandigarh, in the backdrop of the Shivalik mountain range of outer Himalayas, stands 26 metres (85 ft), high out of which the metal hand is 14 metres (46 ft) high and weighs 45 metric tonnes (100,000 lb). The hand is mounted on a swivel and rotates like a vane with the wind.

Why have you not included the extraordinary Holocaust Memorial on South Beach in Miami, Florida?

Thanks David for the link to the giant hand at Holocaust Memorial in Miami. I will add it now in the blog post. During my Google searches for Giant hands it didn't appear in the results, hence it was not included.
