Photographer's Note

This sculpture was made in 1982 by Chilean artist Mario Irarrázabal. The Monument to the Drowned, or simply "The Hand" as it is known, depicts five human fingers partially emerging from sand and has become a symbol of Punta del Este and one of Uruguay's most recognizable landmarks.
