THE HELPING HAND

Palmer Square Chicago, IL USA

Chicago Tree Project 2018

Permanent installation in Palmer Square Park, Chicago IL, USA. This whimsical oversized hand and insect was designed for the City of Chicago Park District’s Tree Project in 2018.  As a member of the Chicago Sculpture International group I was invited to sculpt a tree in the program highlighting a diseased Emerald Ash. The  tree was infested with the Emerald Ash Borer larvae many years ago, died and was trimmed down to it's main trunk at 20ft.
The concrete sculpture consists of an oversized, grasping hand (11 foot long) emerging from the ground at the base of the dying tree. Just above the hand is the adult emerald ash borer also sculpted using concrete & copper.
