This is one of two massive 20 foot “sculptures” in the shape of large hands signifying the legacy of Hands-on learning on Thompson Island. The hands were cleverly constructed by island youth ambassadors and are formed from frames built of medium-sized tree branches and creatively woven with the invasive species found on the island: Oriental Bittersweet and Phragmites. The hands can be seen from many points around Boston Harbor.
