The Illuminated Globe


This is just one of hundreds of works of art enhancing the landscape in the city of Jeddah.  Known as home to the world’s largest open air art museum,  Jeddah proudly displays amazing artwork for all to see, scattered throughout the city streets.  Made of steel and glass, The Illuminated Globe, as it is called, showcases a busy roundabout in northwest Jeddah where a popular mall is located.  It was designed by Julio Lafuente, a Spanish artist and architect who created almost two dozen works of art for the city.

    Susie, just uploaded a photo of this globe, as I took in 1984.
    Referred to this page again. Guess that’ll be OK.
    I saw your photo and your wise husband I saw as well, a nice couple you are !
    Salaam
