Twelve sculptures, 12 pairs of hands at work.

The series, called Hands of Time, was selected by a jury to commemorate the city’s 150th anniversary.

Each sculpture tells a story of a different culture, gender and age, including hands carving a canoe paddle, tying a rope to a mooring ring, performing with a Chinese fan, raising a tea cup and holding a mirror.

The artist is Kelowna based Crystal Przybille. She was one of 80 applicants. Her works will be installed, at locations to be determined, in the fall. The budget for the artwork is $100,000.
