Mosque and Sculpture at Night

As the gorgeous Al-Anani Mosque looms in the background, this modernistic white sculpture gleams in the foreground. Unfortunately I don’t have any particular information about this sculpture, which is one of hundreds that adorn the landscape here in the City of Jeddah. You can see another photo of this stunning mosque and learn more information about it in a previous post I did called Al-Anani Mosque at Dusk. I also posted a daytime photo of this unusual Modern White Sculpture a while back.

    Great shot! It looks so peaceful.

    The white illuminated sculpture in the center, from an angle, looks like a character you’d find in Chinese. I’m sure it’s not, it just looks that way if it were to be straightened up.

    Amazing contrast in color and design, and both are lovely.

    I’ve often wondered about the amount of money that goes into the construction of these beautiful mosques and all the sculpture in S.A. Oil money, I suppose.

    Beautiful night shot, Susie.

    I saw in the news today that a 13-year old girl was sentenced to be whipped and sent to prison for bringing a camera phone to school! Yikes!

    • I read on another blog that now they are saying that this schoolgirl is 20 yrs old and that she got into an altercation with the teacher, but nothing is substantiated. Either way, pretty stiff punishment for having a camera phone in school.
