Sideview of The Cosmos Sculpture


The Cosmos sculpture is one of the largest pieces of public art in Jeddah. It literally soars into the sky at a height exceeding 144 feet and is made of steel and aluminum. I have heard some people here in Jeddah refer to this sculpture as the Fallopian Tubes. You can read a lot more information about this exquisite piece of art on a previous post I did featuring The Cosmos. And I have also posted three other photos of this amazing sculpture, including a closeup of the intricate details of part of the piece, on this slideshow.

    This is a glorious work!
    The Arabic script under this great sculpture is from the Holy Quran 36:38:

    “38. And the sun runs his course for a period determined for him: that is the decree of (Him),
    the Exalted in Might, the All-Knowing.

    39. And the Moon,- We have measured for her mansions (to traverse) till she returns like the old
    (and withered) lower part of a date-stalk.

    40. It is not permitted to the Sun to catch up the Moon, nor can the Night outstrip the Day:
    Each (just) swims along in (its own) orbit (according to Law). “
