La Mano del Desierto
Date: 2006 December 1
This sculpture, created in 1992 by the Chilean sculptor Mario Irarrázabal is located some 75km to the south of the city of Antofagasta, on the Pan American highway.
It stands 11m tall, and on both my visits has been
unfortunately 'decorated' by graffiti, though I think there was less in
2006 than in 2002, so it must be cleaned occasionally.
¡Con la mano del fotógrafo! I couldn't resist it!
