On May 13, a pair of god-like hands emerged from the canals of Venice.
The building that the arms — which are an art installation titled “Support” — appear to be propping up is the historic Ca’ Sagredo hotel.
The sculpture is on display as part of the 2017 La Biennale di Venezia art exhibition.
The sculpture is pretty magnificent and getting it set up was a pretty big undertaking.
The hands symbolize humanity’s power to reshape the world for good or ill.
“Venice is a floating art city that has inspired cultures for centuries,” said Quinn. “But to continue to do so it needs the support of our generation and future ones, because it is threatened by climate change and time decay.”
