If you follow this blog, you know that there are countless public art specimens which dot the landscape of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. For many of these works of art, it is very difficult to try to find out any specific information about them, like who the artist was, what materials were used in its creation, or what the name of the piece is. This is one such piece that I have no information on. It is composed of colorful tiles which appear more like a modern art painting rather than a sculpture, as so many of the public art works of Jeddah are. This type of piece surprises me because it is so modern looking and has many strange looking faces and other body parts – not something one might expect in such a conservative and deeply religious country. There are no sculptures here which take on the human form, since that might lend itself to idolatry – but individual body parts are perfectly fine.
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.
