is over 9' in diameter, includes more than 850 gloves that have been stuffed and painted, ranging from small child size to extra-large adult size gloves. The gloves are laid on top of each other for support each other which enhances the idea of people "working together." The colors suggest the Spring season, a time of year when there is new growth, new life. The circular shape suggests the idea of "conduit" or "flow," a continuing motion.
"Hands That Build V" is a celebration of Life and Love.
