  "Hand of God", Sculpture by Carl Milles
by sim1

A sculpture in Eskilstuna that I love is this one by Carl Milles. It is located in the city park Stadsparken and it is called "Hand of God". When you are at the Kloster Church (see previous tip) follow the river a little bit, and you can see this sculpture towering high above you close to the river bank.

This sculpture "Hand of God" is from 1954 and is one of Milles' most well-known sculptures. It can be found in different parts of the world, in the USA, in Japan, Australia and Indonesia. The original, however, is in Sweden, right here in Eskilstuna.
