Description

Auguste Rodin (French, 1840–1917) was fascinated by the expressive possibilities of hands. A deeply sensitive sculpture, The Hand of Godrepresents divine creation, the life-giving hand symbolizing both the Creator and the sculptor. There are numerous versions of this masterwork by Rodin in both marble and bronze. Our faithful reproduction is based on a marble commissioned from Rodin in 1906 by a Met trustee.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor reproduction I returned this because the reproduction was poor and was more a paperweight than what it was supposed to represent. if you are seriously considering this purchase, try to see it first hand in the museum gift shop. It was an inconvenience to ship back because it was heavy and I had to incur the shipping costs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointing Poor quality reproduction, details of sculpture as pictured on website are rougher looking in person. Since it is so heavy, will now be a hassle to return.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from STRIKING! This sculpture is striking because of its theme: two figures being generated within God's hand. Rodin loved hands and this one encases the creation of both man and woman. The medium is stone which lends weight and significance to the piece. It is not as detailed as the original because of the way the reproduction was made, but it is still effective.
