SkyWatch: Modernistic Sculpture

dscf8979-2-copy
Not much of a sky to look at in this photo, but this is one of the more modern and unusual sculptures that is part of the city of Jeddah’s huge open air museum which is free to the public. Like many others, this sculpture sits in the middle of a large intersection. I’m not sure what it’s called or who the artist is who created it. To me it looks like some sort of spaceship or possibly a crown.

    Very interesting sculpture but I would imagine it to be a little out of place. Do the local people like it.

    this must look lovely lit up at night…i like the idea of having public works of art for all to enjoy. it is a great concept and i wish that there was more of that in the united states.

    This is a fascinating sculpture! And to be at an intersection is most unusual! Great outline against the sky!

    Sorry for the really bad typo. My tiny keyboard is the problem, but I wasn’t paying attention above.

  19. Louise says:

    I just can’t imagine this inthemiddle of an intersection!

  20. Geogypsy says:

    There sure are a lot of amazing sculptures in Jeddah to decorate the sky.

  21. Gill says:

    very unusual, I can’t imagine it being allowed to be built in an “old” city?
