SkyWatch: Sculpture Maintenance


There are countless works of public art here in Jeddah, many of which I have featured on this blog and many of which were designed by world renowned artists. Built of a variety of different materials, the sculptures require periodic cleaning and maintenance to make repairs and check on the construction and parts. So occasionally I see cages around some of the sculptures when they are being maintained. This sculpture is called Science and Religion and was created by Spanish architect Julio Lafuente. To learn more about it, please see this previous post I did about this sculpture – the photo was taken at a different time of day and the sculpture has no cage around it.
To visit MORE friendly skies around the world, fly on over to SKYWATCH where you’ll find beautiful skies posted by bloggers all over the world.

    At first I thought the cage was part of the artwork also. Cleaning all those moons looks like a big job. Beautiful and interesting Skywatch post.

    That’s an interesting sculpture and good that it is being maintained. I thought the cage was always there until I read you explanation. Beautiful blue skies to serve as a backdrop to the sculpture.

  9. Funny, I was thinking pretty much the same thing that Gaelyn wrote in her comment! In fact, when I first looked at the photo, I though it might be part of the sculpture! Hope you’ve had a good week. Hope your husband is doing well! Have a wonderful weekend!

    Science and religion, an interesting combination. The cage could almost be part of the sculpture.
