Much of the public art in Jeddah is interactive and invites people to use it, touch it, sit on it, or play on it. This is one such piece. This octopus is made of local stone but I don’t know who designed it. I love seeing the Red Sea in the background. The sea is one of the themes of the many sculptures in Jeddah. There are other sculptures on the Corniche that are designed with similar stones in cement like this. FYI – I’ve organized all the amazing public art of Jeddah that I have posted on this blog (more than 75 so far!) onto one page for your convenience. The link is just below the header at the top and it’s called Sculptures of Jeddah. Check it out!

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.
