This artistic column was made from scrap metal and was created by Italian sculptor Arnaldo Pomodoro. The world renowned artist was commissioned to make several works of art for the city of Jeddah. His works can be seen in places like the Vatican, U.N. Headquarters in New York City, Brisbane, Washington D.C., and Dublin. One of his most well known pieces is in a cathedral in Milwaukee. It is a controversial fiberglass crucifix bearing the figure of Christ topped off by a fourteen foot diameter crown of thorns. This metal cyllindrical shape, however, is more typical of Pomodoro’s work, as well as similarly designed cubes and spheres.
Also visible in the background of this photo was the piece of art I featured in yesterday’s post.
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 and teenage son. 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'S BIG ADVENTURE, which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
