Not a very interesting sky, but… One wouldn’t expect to see much in the way of artwork at a gas station, but many businesses here commission their own art in unison with the amazing public art all over Jeddah. In the city there are several pieces of art having to do with the earth, so this gas station’s huge globe which hovers prominently over the business is in keeping with that theme. In fact one of Jeddah’s most beautiful and most famous pieces of public art is the Illuminated Globe by Spanish artist Julio LaFuente. I don’t know why the globe in this artwork has a ring around it like Saturn – maybe it was just a matter of artistic license.

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.
