Helping Hands: Louise Bourgeois

I really admire this sculpture made by Louise called The Helping Hand. They are a set of life size hands carved out of black granite columns, originated in 1989 in Chicago. This sculpture is dedicated to Jane Adam, the Noble Prize winning activist who promoted suffrage, social responsibility and public service. This sculpture is the only sculpture in the city commemorating a woman. I really like the background this piece shares, it is very meaningful and with that shows power to all people. It provides the importance to the public, letting all people know that to always be a helping hand for those who need you.
