Five Fan Palms Sculpture


This is another stunning sculpture made of cast alloy by German artist Ottmar Hollmann, who is credited with the creation of more than a dozen public art sculptures here in Jeddah. Most of his works were designed and made in Europe and then shipped to Jeddah. Hollmann’s most well known sculpture in Jeddah is called the Cosmos, which I have previously featured on this blog twice before. For some time, Hollmann had an interest in Islam before he was commissioned to do the sculptures, many of which were inspired by Islam and have a religious theme.

    It seems odd to have a sculpture of palm trees right next to real palm trees.
