Huge hand buried in the Atacama Desert

hand1

Looks like a man’s giant hand was buried in sand after a catastrophic storm. It lies about 75 km south of the city of Antofagasta, Atacama desert and is a bizarre spectacle. It’s not a mystery, but a true work of art that locals called it “„Mano de Desierto” – Dessert’s Hand, a creation as you will never meet in any other part of the world.
The massive sculpture measures 11 feet in height and is Chilean sculptor Mario Irarrazabal work of art, and today, in the immensity of the most arid place on Earth, attracts almost daily curious who want to admire it.
