"Hands can, and often do, depict every human emotion and action, which is why I’ve always been drawn to sculpting them. The simple gesture of a hand can depict the bestowal of a blessing and love, or a stern condemnation and fight. Open hands symbolize giving and receiving. In Hands of Peace I’ve purposefully directed my hands heavenward with the gift of peace in the form of a dove and the iconic olive branch. May our hands always be open, willing to give and serve, and never be clenched in preparation for battle or conflict. May peace and goodwill always be in our hearts as we offer up the very best to our Creator and humanity!" Gary Lee Price

"Hands of Peace" is a bronze sculpture of a large bird with its wings elegantly outstretched forms the central focus, perched atop human hands. The hands are rooted to the base of the object. The bird and hands share a symbiotic relationship, emphasizing a theme of unity between humans and nature. The details of the sculpture are intricate, from the individual feathers on the bird to the textured patterns on the palms. The artwork stands on a solid rectangular base, which provides a sturdy support for the dynamic and expressive composition above.
