Manus Ultimus sculpture by Magdalena Abakanowicz
This first HD photo shows a modern art sculpture called Manus Ultimus, which was cast in bronze in 1997, and then installed within the Tuileries Garden next to a pond in the year 2000.
Manus Ultimus sculpture in Jardin des Tuileries
You will find that this statue was sculpted by Magdalena Abakanowicz, who was born in Poland in the year 1930, and became an artist and sculptor, initially working with materials such as sack cloth and linen, but in more recent years started to use other materials such as wood, metal and bronze.

So this photograph shows that the Manus Ultimus contemporary art sculpture could look like a tree, or from a different point of view it could be a hand, wrist and arm, and in fact, this composition was based upon an earlier series that Magdalene Abakanowicz sculpted, which was called the Hand-Like Trees.

Yet prior to producing this particular modern art statue of Manus Ultimus, located within the Tuileries Gardens in Paris, Magdalena Abakanowicz produced an enormous work that was just called Manus, which is now located in Washington, USA.
