Skywatch: Jeddah Sculpture

 

Stained Glass Sculpture in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

Stained Glass Sculpture in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

My new hometown of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is home to the world’s largest open air art museum.  There are hundreds of sculptures which adorn the entire city.   I have always loved stained glass, so this one is one of my favorites.  To give you an idea of the height of this structure, my 5’10” son can stand inside the open triangular shape at the base, and he is barely taller than the bottom two panels.   If you are interested in seeing more photos like this and learning more about the beautiful, varied, and amazing sculptures of Jeddah, please click to a post I wrote about this subject on my other blog, Susie’s Big Adventure.
