Ilmar Torn "Kaluri käed"

Ilmar Torn "Kaluri käed"

Ilmar Torn’s “Kaluri käed” is doubtlessly one of the best-known works of the Estonian graphical art. Its power of persuasion and inner conviction are remarkable. Even though the work has a poetry of its own, it is not fragile and dispersing, but firm and strong. While focusing his attention not on the sea, boat or fisherman’s face, Torn still says something really important. Hands, pressed into fists, pulling the boat forward, tell us of working, taking pains, traditions, religion and hope.
