Each pair of hands represents one of the six universal values: 

Friendship: With two hands just touching as a symmetrical image conveying trust and support. 
Wisdom: As an older and younger hand passing knowledge through the generations.
Help: As two hands united in a show of empathy and physical and moral support. 
Faith: As the hand of an adult clasping that of a child.
Hope: With two folded hands crossing fingers as a symbol of optimism.
Love: With hands tightly embracing each other. 







Lorenzo Quinn is an Italian artist Born on 7 May 1966 in Rome and a son of famous Mexican-American actor Anthony Quinn and his second wife, costume designer Iolanda Addolori. His art work is inspired by such masters as Michelangelo, Bernini and Rodin.
