Hand-Like Trees

Magdalena Abakanowicz, 1994/1995

The hollow form, as the title suggests, resembles both a decaying, textured tree trunk with branched long removed and a gesturing, gnarled hand drawn up into a fist. Hand-Like Trees with its simplicity of form redolent with the power of suggestion and emotional impact.
