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.
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.
