I'm not sure what the concept was behind 'the hand' holding the light. Was it someone's personal humor that was able to be displayed or was there a real reason that a hand was chosen? I may need to do some reading on this. I just found it odd but interesting. This is at the main entrance of The Forum in downtown Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The building has been around since 1930. Look around wherever you are there's lots to see that goes unnoticed.
