Bruce Nauman's 'Fifteen Pairs of Hands' installation is one of the most distinct exhibits you will ever see. The bronze sculptures show decapitated hands that are in captivating positions as they sit on top of individual steel bases.

The entire concept is as otherworldly as it comes, and what's so impressive is that the focal point of the series are hands. Whether it's the Illuminati-signaling hands or the mirrored creations, each sculpture evokes a very surreal effect.

Finding distinct artwork that is able to at once inspire and shock an audience is a difficult task these days. That Nauman was able to capture both feats with his 'Fifteen Pairs of Hands' exhibit speaks volumes about his talent and creativity.
