Hands and Molecules

Hands and Molecules
A pair of hands, 8 feet tall, emerging from the ground and cradling a molecule is located on the Westcliff Promenade, Ramsgate, Kent, UK. The sculpture by David Barnes was funded by the pharmaceutical company Pfizer and installed by Thanet District Council; this work celebrates the discovery, development and manufacture of innovative medicines in East Kent.
It was unveiled in June 2000 to mark the opening of the National Cycle Network (Route 15) in Thanet, Kent.
Bronze casting by Livingstone Art Founders (Tonbridge)

I submitted a photo of this complete with arms 18 months ago but not from this angle against a blue sky.

Putting this in HFF group as we can't upload at the moment (Dec 11 2020)

And of course Pfizer are in the news at the moment with development of a Covid 19 vaccine, they have a small facility just down the road at Sandwich, the vaccine is coming from Belgium.

Best viewed full screen Please!!

HFF Everyone!!

An appropriate image for this time, John. I am a great fan of public artworks and especially those with a worthwhile story behind them. Having a clear blue sky background is well worth a second showing!

What a cool and fascinating sculpture! I loved reading about it. And the speed at which we've gotten vaccines for Covid is nothing less than incredible!

I hope we are all vaccinated soon, let us cross our fingers!! :)
