Pass beneath the clasping hands. Largest Clasping Stone Hands in Kentucky

Cool hands statue. The neighborhood seemed fine.

Clasping Hands. Largest Clasping Stone Hands in Kentucky

Huge limestone hands clasp across a sidewalk that enters a building in downtown Louisville. Measuring over 14' tall and 20' wide, they tower over the people that walk under them to enter the building. Surrounded by brick walls the hands symbolize the partnership between the community and the organization the building houses. The hands are stunning at night when they are illuminated. The area is not the safest and should be visited daylight or briefly at night.
