Praying Hands at ORU

The Praying hands now located at the entrance of Oral Roberts University were originally built outside of the City of Faith Medical and Research Center, a massive modern complex established as a holistic Christian hospital by the Oral Roberts University. The sculpture was cast in 1980 in Mexico and shipped to Tulsa in a particularly labor intensive bit of cost-cutting. At 60 feet tall and over 30 tons of pure bronze, the supplicating hands were one of the largest pure bronze statues in the world when built.
