Art or Lantern?

dscf0003-1-copy
Businesses in Jeddah are mainly organized by streets or districts where similar businesses are found right next door to each other. When you’re trying to compare prices and designs, it definitely makes it easier to go from one shop to the next. This keeps prices pretty competitive.  This photo was taken in an area of town where there are hundreds of wrought iron works, one right after the other. I’m not really sure if the huge lantern shaped object is a real lantern, or perhaps a fancy cage, or possibly a piece of custom art. Much of the art around Jeddah is larger than life, and this would fit the bill.  It’s been sitting in this spot for several weeks now – once it’s gone, I’ll be on the lookout to see where it might pop up in its new home around the city.

    Susie: That looks like art to me, maybe it will end up on your outside wall.
