All 5 Hungry Horses Sculpture


My son named this sculpture of five galloping horses “The Hungry Horses,” because each of them is missing their entire middle section. It’s practically impossible to get a good shot of these horses driving by in a fast moving vehicle. This sculpture is located in the center dividing island of one of the busiest roads in Jeddah. For religious reasons, humans and other living creatures depicted in their entirety are forbidden, hence the mid section of the horses is missing.

    I like the sculpture. I didn’t know the reason for the missing section, but the need to follow restraints often helps create interesting art.

    Hi Susie, This is one of my favourite sculptures I must say. I find it amazing that when driving past it, there is a moment you do see the horses as one complete animal…have you noticed that?

    • No, I haven’t noticed that! We’re usually going so fast by there and I’m almost always on the farthest side of the car, but I’ll have to try to notice that now that you mentioned it! I really want to have my husband pull over one day so I can actually get down from the car and walk over and take much better closeup shots…
