Week 33 of the 2008 Challenge.
Matthews Corporation International Freedom Sculpture, located in Rolling Hills Memorial Park. This sculpture used to have two hands and a bird, but it has been vandalized. Now the effect is of a hand reaching desperately from the grave, rather than hands releasing a bird to be free.
