Wonderful sculpture.

It is something "desperate" about the hands....
Strong public art!
Meaningful and also a bit like the art at the Vigeland Park in Oslo.

It makes me realize that you don't see many memorials for such civilian victims of war. It is a good idea.
And this that you show here is a strong reminder.
