|Understanding artist intent not only increases clarity but also|
allows us to experience a deeper appreciation of what it is we're seeing.
The Hand in Silver Spring, MD. is no exception.
Ray Kaskey created The Hand to reflect the mission of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to record and protect the environment. The seagulls are part of the NOAA's logo, and the hand is releasing them gently into the atmosphere. This work of art stands 12 ft. high and is made of Bronze.
