My client wanted me to come up with some kind of embedded design in this rather large patio. After drafting up several ideas, which included a sun, a saturn-like planet and a horse, I hit home with the idea of making a large hand out of flagstone. We used a combination of Pennsylvania Lilac and Three Rivers Flagstone, the latter being the light, multi-colored variety.
Below is a shot of the hand pattern before the rest of the patio was installed:
