White Sculpture “Motherhood”

DSCF6021 2
I have no information about this sculpture which is located on a busy corner of Jeddah. It is unusual looking and I don’t know whether it might be religious or just whimsical. When I first saw it, I thought it was a baseball but the shape is more oval than round, and the big white wing behind it doesn’t look like it’s related to baseball either. Any thoughts?

    It is called ‘Motherhood’. It represents ‘mother-in-waiting’ and it is appropriately located adjacent to Baqshan Hospital for Maternity.

  3. Not a baseball, but I would venture that it is more likely a cricket ball. I’m thinking that the piece behind it is reminiscent of a flame…

    I thought it was a baseball, too, but is there not more stitching on a baseball? Not sure. Anyway, aside from that,I haven’t a clue! Let us know if you find out what it is!

    It is a whimsical sculpture. It looks like a baseball to me (a baseball sewn by a drunken Haitian woman perhaps) but a baseball nonetheless.

    My first thought was of a baseball as well. Maybe it’s a seed of a plant, and the thing behind it is a leaf?

    I thought of an egg sewn back together…
