The Wave

dscf3300-2
The Wave sits in the middle of a busy intersection in Jeddah.   I couldn’t capture the entire sculpture – it is larger than what you see. It is completely covered in mosaic tilework.   To give you an idea of the size, look at the center of the photo at the base of the large wave and you will see the outline of a door.   I guess repairmen can go inside the structure if need be.   Mustafa Senbel, an Egyptian designer, created The Wave for the city of Jeddah, as well as almost 30 other masterpieces, like The Fisherman’s Net and Dialogue, both of which I have featured in previous posts.

    Susie, I like this one the best of all, so far. Must be 3-4 stories tall. Mosaics are magnificent. I still can’t get over all the huge sculptures in your world.
