Government Sign


This piece of artwork is a monument made of etched stone. The large piece is in the shape of the country of Saudi Arabia and is etched with images of some kings and historical or religious dates and events. It is placed in front of a government building and is quite large. I haven’t been able to get a great shot of this piece since I am always in a moving car when we pass by it, but this is the best photo of it I have gotten to date. The palm tree and crossed swords on the carved piece placed in the center of the stone are symbols of the Saudi government.

    That is a nice idea for a monument. History etched in stone.
