Unique “Mother’s Hands” khachkar

This unique “Mother’s Hands” khachkar, dedicated to the memory of the victims of the Armenian Genocide in the Ottoman Empire, is located in Lowell (Massachusetts, USA).

The stone is carved in the form of a caring and tired mother’s hands, which seem to be made of a wool khachkar.

The monument is unusual in that it is located in front of the state government building, unlike other monuments, which are more often located in the area of ​​Armenian churches.

According to the creator of the memorial Daniel Hejinyan, the pattern symbolizes the prayers and hopes that Armenians around the world say.
