The Yellow Hand is a 24 metre long, 40 tonne sculpture. We first saw it in a field behind a hardware shop in Chatellerault, dismantled and lying on the ground. We were intrigued, because although there was a works sign there was no indication of what it was for.
Apparently work was help up for over two years while the structure was strengthened and insurance matters were sorted out, but now it is nearing completion.
Now all the roundabouts on the Chatellerault bypass have items of interest on them - roundabouts on city bypasses are frequently landscaped; some quite bizarrely, but often the decoration relates to local culture or legend. We will have to do a photo set one day.
