The Mano del Desierto is a large-scale sculpture of a hand located in the Atacama Desert in Chile, south of the city of Antofagasta, on the Panamerican Highway.

The sculpture was constructed by the Chilean sculptor Mario Irarrázabal. He used the human figure to express emotions like injustice, loneliness, sorrow and torture. Its exaggerated size is said to emphasize human vulnerability and helplessness.
