Located on the Paseo de la Castellana, next to the fountain of San Juan de la Cruz, you will find this sculpture, which was part of a collection of sculptures by Fernando Botero exhibited temporarily in the Paseo de Recoletos in the year 1994.
The Telefónica Foundation bought the last in a series of three identical casts of the sculpture "La Mano", which it then loaned to the city of Madrid for public exhibition. It is made from 500 kg of bronze, and just like the rest of this artist's work, it shows his admiration for the opulent forms of Rubens' paintings and the sensuality of curved lines, always contemplated through a lens of excess and studied ingenuity.
