The Supplication is one of the most famous public art sculptures in the city of Jeddah. Many of the public artwork pieces have a religious theme and bear verses from the Holy Quran, as this one does on its plinth. This bigger than lifesize set of praying hands is made of marble and was designed by artist Mahmoud Banat. At night, the city of Jeddah springs to life with neon and colored lights everywhere. Many of the beautiful sculptures are lit up with colored flood lights and the effects are very dramatic. To see a previous post featuring this same sculpture in the daylight, click here.
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.
