“you know what they say about big hands...”

A 60 ft, 30 ton bronze sculpture called the Praying Hands, by sculptor Leonard McMurray (cast in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico in 1980) was moved to the ORU campus entrance in the summer of 1991. It was originally located in front of the CityPlex towers, a commercial office space. Perfect for a photo op!

Wrong address. Needs to be corrected to Tulsa as the city.

It's worth a drive-by since this is a main entrance of Oral Roberts University.

feckweed405 Mix early airport architecture with an evangelical university and you get the vibe of this area. Well worth a visit if you are passing through!

We found World's Largest Praying hands on Roadtrippers and decided to visit when in Tulsa. It is worth the stop if in the area. The Oral Roberts University campus that it's located on is nice and picturesque.

Really awesome to see in person!! It has lots of interesting buildings around too as it's on a college campus. We took pictures of all the buildings around this sculpture too. It is in TULSA though!
