This sculpture is at one of Punta del Estes's famous beaches: "La playa de los Dedos" ("The finger beach"), which is near the main street in the city, close to a surf spot, and it has this giant hand emerging from the sand. Great photo spot.

Every bit aw-inspiring as you could imagine. To walk up to the beach and see a giant hand immersing from the sand was simply incredible. One of several hand sculptures done by Mario Irarrázabal around the world.

The Monumento de Ahogado (Monument to the drowned) is located on Brava Beach in Punta del Este. The fingers and thumb coming up from the sandy beach is a bit weird, but it is dedicated to all of those who have drowned at the Brava Beach.
