An art installation has horrified locals in Wellington, New Zealand.
The sculpture is a giant hand located at the top of the City Gallery Wellington roof. The thing which makes it interesting is the hand also has a face.
“Give a big hand for Wellington’s newest resident,” says a tweet posted on the @Wellington_NZ Twitter handle.
It goes on to detail that artwork, called Quasi, has been designed by artist Ronnie Van Hout.
Its previous home was the Christchurch City Gallery since 2016. However, now Quasi will “call the City Gallery Wellington roof his new home.”
Quasi is almost sixteen-and-a-half feet tall - and both the hands and the face fashioned on it are based on the artist’s own hand.
Residents have not taken normally. People on Twitter have been posting their reaction on the sculpture and have even made it go viral for all the negative reactions.
“That is the ugliest and most disturbing piece of ‘art’ I have ever seen in my life,” says a Twitter user.
“Did someone in Wellington city council lose a bet or a poker game against Christchurch to take home this prize?” asks another.
“The stuff of nightmares. No, seriously,” says a third. “I really think he’s quite HAND-some!” jokes another.
