Good morning Epzers...trust all finds you well Smile

This sculpture is in the cloisters of the Iona abbey...Can't tell you anymore, unfortunately, even `Goggling' hasn't helped. Some of the sculptures are fairly new (1967) and much of the abbey is reconstructed anyway...but this took my eye GrinGrin

Thought I recognised these hands Jeff, I entered one like this in a club competition, it scored 18, I included some of the arches, the grain is excellent for this gritty capture.

An oarsman I think? Quite extraordinary, and beautifully photographed and processed.

Intriguing, Jeff. Could be an interpretation of so many things...strange that google had nothing to offer.
Like the gritty b&w conversion, the grittiness matches the rough stone.

Think I remember reading in the Abbey that these are the hands of the Stonemason holding chisels.
