A "kinda creepy" hand sculpture was suspended by helicopter earlier in August and placed on the roof of City Gallery Wellington. The installation -- which measures at five meters in height, is the work of New Zealand artist Ronnie van Hout. Described as a "partial self-portrait" of the creative, the composition presents a fusion of a face and a hand. It is actually "scans of the artist's own body parts."
The hand sculpture goes by the name of 'Quasi' — a reference that is derived from 'The Hunchback of Notre-Dame' and the main protagonist, Quasimodo. For construction, Ronnie van Hout utilized a mix of steel, polystyrene, and resin. The installation is expected to adorn the City Gallery Wellington for up to three years.
