To Give You an Idea…

I’m posting this to give you an idea of the size and scope of some of the public artwork sculptures around the city of Jeddah. This photo was taken from a couple of blocks away from one of Jeddah’s famous landmark sculptures, which sits in the middle of a large traffic roundabout. The sculpture is of larger than life math gadgets – a compass, a protractor, a ruler, etc. – and is called “Engineers’ Tools.” Below is a closer view of the same sculpture from a different angle.

    Hi Susie of Arabia! I happened to stumble onto your blog, and I must admit that it’s making me homesick for Jeddah. Though I didn’t actually live there, my parents did for two years and I visited them a few times.

    …and one of my most favourite things about Jeddah are these huuuuge sculptures that tends to be in the middle of the roundabouts. I especially love that a lot of them are random everyday objects that are just scaled up. Seems very trivial, indulgent and ridiculous… and fun 😀
