“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!

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!

This is really worth the stop. The detail of the sculpture is amazing. Kids 6 and 9 were even impressed.

Worth driving by if you're in Tulsa, but nothing special. Pretty from a distance, disappointing up close.
