“you know what they say about big hands...”
A 60 ft, 30 ton bronze sculpture called the Praying Hands, by sculptor Leonard McMurray (cast in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico in 1980) was moved to the ORU campus entrance in the summer of 1991. It was originally located in front of the CityPlex towers, a commercial office space. Perfect for a photo op!
This is in Tulsa, not Jenks. Street address is correct but wrong city and navigate took us to a stadium.
This is a beautiful site! Very glad we stopped here!
Wow! Awesome! Now my kids want to go to the University here. Thanks Roadtripper!
Really awesome to see in person!! It has lots of interesting buildings around too as it's on a college campus. We took pictures of all the buildings around this sculpture too. It is in TULSA though!
Very cool stop. Plus you can enjoy the architecture of Oral Roberts University
This is really worth the stop. The detail of the sculpture is amazing. Kids 6 and 9 were even impressed.
Very impressive sculpture.
Worth driving by if you're in Tulsa, but nothing special. Pretty from a distance, disappointing up close.
the hands are huge and the university is beautiful, a cool place to see and read about if you are into religon
