Giving new meaning to the term “Fruit Boat,” this larger than life sculpture in Jeddah is one of many sculptures around the city that make use of actual ships or aircraft. The massive scale of this work of art can be determined by the car parked in front of it. There are actually pieces of large scale fruit on the ground on the other side of the sculpture, appearing like overflow from the filled fruit boat. Whenever I see this sculpture, I am reminded of a carved out watermelon fruit bowl filled with a variety of fresh fruits. Jeddah is home to the world’s largest free public open air art museum featuring works of art created by artists from around the globe.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
