Praying Hands in Tulsa Oklahoma is a symbolic symbol at the entrance of Oral Roberts University. It is a bronze sculpture in the shape of praying hands.

The Praying Hands

These hands are 60 feet tall, weighing 30 tons, making them the world’s largest bronze sculpture. One would like to imagine that they are strong, American hands, but evangelist Oral Roberts outsourced their casting to Juarez, Mexico in 1980. The Praying Hands were then shipped to Tulsa, Oklahoma. One hand is from a casting of Oral’s hand and the other is from a casting of his son Richard’s hand.

The ultra-detailed hands are forever locked in a prayer that even if it is unanswered, can certainly not be missed. They may even be seen from the airplane when touching down in Tulsa.
