Lorenzo Quinn’s Amazing  ‘Hand of God’ Sculpture Located in Mayfair, London

The latest Lorenzo Quinn sculpture ‘Hand of God’ was lowered into place on London’s Park Lane in Mayfair on the 21st of August 2011. Yesterday evening whilst out and about on my travels I took a detour over to the posh part of town to have a look of the 4m, 400kg aluminium hand with a man held in its palm – a massive hand holding a man who looks like he is carrying the troubles of the world on his shoulders!

Lorenzo Quinn who is incidentally the fifth son of the legendary Hollywood actor Anthony Quinn – is a highly esteemed sculptor, who has created many fantastic pieces of art, that are not only beautiful to look at, but are thought provoking. Quinn has had his work exhibited in many top galleries and museums throughout the world – a very, very talented artist.

Way … way back in June, which seems like such a long time ago now, I stumbled upon Quinn’s Vroom Vroom sculpture, which was located where the ‘Hand of God’ sculpture now sits in Mayfair. A stunning piece of art – again it featured a giant hand holding Lorenzo Quinn’s first car, a Fiat 500.

Lorenzo Quinn’s Hand of God sculpture forms part of his 2011 worldwide public art programme that includes he State Hermitage Museum, Russia; La Biennale di Scultura, Rome; and the 54th International Art Exhibition, Venice Biennale.

Lorenzo Quinn’s ‘Hand of God’ sculpture located on Park Lane in Mayfair is definitely worth popping along to see. Also located a short walk away in Berkeley Square is another public art piece by Quinn called ‘Force of Nature II’ which is also an impressive piece, which doesn’t feature an oversized hand!


  1. I would love to see all his work. He’s amazing.

    Have a terrific day. 🙂

  2. Comedy Plus, he sure is a talented sculptor.
