“The hand holds so much power: the power to love, to create, to hate, to destroy.”

Inspired by masters such as Michelangelo, Bernini and Rodin, Italian artist Lorenzo is famed for his striking hand sculptures.


As the son of the actor Anthony Quinn, Lorenzo split his childhood between Italy and the USA. He studied at the American Academy of the Fine Arts in New York before enjoying a brief career as an actor.

After turning his hand to sculpture, he gained notable commissions, including The Tree of Life, which was created for the United Nations and issued as a stamp in 1993. In 1994, he created a likeness of Saint Anthony for the Basilica del Santo in Padua, which was blessed by the Pope in front of a 35,000-strong crowd. 

Lorenzo prides himself on sculpting the most technically challenging part of the human body. For him, hands symbolise the power we have as humans to impact both our lives and those of people around us. He explains: “The hand holds so much power: the power to love, create, hate and destroy.”
