The Structure of the Atom Sculpture

dscf5841
This beautiful modern sculpture is located in a large roundabout in the city of Jeddah.  It is one of probably hundreds of works of art that grace the city. It is called the Structure of the Atom and is made of aluminum. FIAT – the Italian car maker – gifted this work of art to the city of Jeddah. The rings represent the rotating atomic particles which are drive by an electric motor.

    Thanks for your photo journal! I just finished reading a book called “Finding Nouf” which takes place in and around Jeddah. The author offers little description of the city, but makes references to some landmarks. I found your blog very helpful in getting a real sense of the environment of the book.
