Alas, yet again I have no particular information about this sculpture. My main reference for finding out information about the various sculptures abounding in Jeddah is a book written by one of the sons of the man whose vision in shaping Jeddah into the city of art that it is. As Jeddah experienced unprecedented growth in the 1970s due to the influx of big bucks from the developing oil industry in Saudi Arabia, Jeddah’s Mayor Mohammed Farsi was instrumental in the plan for turning Jeddah into a magnificent modern city. The book, “Jeddah: City of Art,” was first published in 1991 and, even at that time, did not include all the public art that Jeddah has become famous for. Many pieces have also been added since that time, so gathering data about all the works is sometimes next to impossible. I’ll continue to post many of these sculptures even though I may not be able to supply you with specific information about them.

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.
