Artist's Description

The “hand” was part of a public sculpture/statue in Siracusa’s main square (Sicily, Italy). I framed the shot so that it appears that the hand is reaching up to grab the top of the church. A bit of whimsy.

“This is how it works
It feels a little worse
Than when we drove our hearse
Right through that screaming crowd
While laughing up a storm
Until we were just bone
Until it got so warm
That none of us could sleep
And all the styrofoam
Began to melt away
We tried to find some words
To aid in the decay
But none of them were home
Inside their catacomb
A million ancient bees
Began to sting our knees
While we were on our knees
Praying that disease
Would leave the ones we love
And never come again”
~ Regina Spektor, On the Radio
