Bloody Hand Nailed to Cross

A house has a strange sculpture of a rusty, tilted cross with a bloody white hand nailed to it. I'm assuming it has religious significance, but there is no sign explaining why it is here, and the building on the property looks like a house, not a church. I parked on the shoulder of the road south of the property and then walked back to take my photos.
