Some of Jeddah’s most beautiful and striking works of art were created by the Spanish artist Julio Lafuente. This bronze and granite creation is called the Dallah Fountain. It consists of a couple dozen Arabian coffee pots mounted on granite stands and they pour water from their spouts into small granite cups. It is quite a dazzling sight to behold. In a period spanning twelve years, Lafuente created more than a score of fountains and monuments as part of Jeddah’s urban beautification program. His works include The (larger-than-life) Bicycle, the gorgeous Mameluke Lanterns, and The Illuminated Globe, all of which I have featured in previous posts. Just click on each one to view.
