Wishing Peace Upon Us All

DSCF4655

I loved this sculpture when I first saw it in Agrigento in the Valley of the Temples.  I love the open hands – to me they represent peace.  Open hands, upturned and cupped together, can neither make a fist to strike nor slap nor backhand.  They offer something to us.  The peace that is inherent in their form.  So, in keeping with this lovely piece of art, I wish everyone a peaceful Christmas, belated Hannukah, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice, New Years or whichever winter holiday you celebrate.
