A Big Hand for the Fifth Ward

by Robert Boyd

The Fifth Ward's giant hand

I was up on Lyons in the Fifth Ward to see the official opening of Havel & Ruck's Fifth Ward Jam, when I saw this hand.

There is no signage or anything to indicate what this is all about. The only identifying mark I could find was this:

Fifth Ward Hand

I don't know if Tanya is the sculptor, or if the sculptor had dedicated this work to Tanya, or if this is basically a piece of graffiti.

This eccentric piece of public art is at the intersection of Lyons and Sydnor, not too far from the St. Arnold's Brewery. Do any Pan readers know the story behind it?
