The Mameluke Minarets sculpture is made of copper over a steel frame. Egyptian artist Salah Abdulkarim was inspired by his own country’s Mameluke period designs in mosque architecture. This sculpture occupies a prominent position in A-Bayah Square in Jeddah. Abdulkarim was commissioned to produce many works of art and the beauty of this piece is a fitting tribute to Islamic art.
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.
