This Jeddah sculpture is called Al-Sholla, which is Arabic for The Flame. It is located on a traffic island in the center of Jeddah. Unfortunately I do not have any further information about this sculpture, but it seems to be made of bronze. I think it is very graceful looking. To see more of the amazing sculptures of Jeddah that I have posted on this blog, just click above on “Sculptures of Jeddah,” right below the header.
UPDATE: I have been informed that this piece of art is the creation of Finnish sculptress, Laila Pullinen (1933-). She has worked in many mediums and one of her graceful bronze sculptures was even honored on a Finnish postage stamp in 2010.

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.
