SK5962 : Big Hand

Big Hand
Big Hand
The waste tips of the former Clipstone Colliery have been turned into a country park which includes this sculpture of a giant hand. Is this reaching out to grasp the now desolate headstocks?
I wrote this before seeing this - SK5962 : The Golden Hand reaching for the pit heads - the viewpoint is almost identical, the lighting conditions dramatically different.
